Interesting Read

Here is a very thought-provoking read from author Dan Simmons.

This is his fictional (at least I hope it is) take on the coming "Century war" with Islam.

As a side note...Dan Simmons is a great writer. I read a lot of his books back when I was in high school and college. I even got to meet him once or twice when he did signings in Houston at the old Future Visions store (if anyone still remembers it) and I believe at one of the ArmadilloCons in Austin.

The Hyperion books are a good place to start exploring his work.

It was also through his novel Hyperion that I gained an appreciation for the poetry of Keats.
