This week we’re joined by Toerag for the next in our Hugo award winners series. This time we’re looking 1989 winner, Hyperion by Dan Simmons.
It’s Hugo winner time again, and so we’ve read Philip K Dick’s classic 1962 alternate history novel The Man in the High Castle where the Allies lost WW2 and now the Germans and Japanese have divided up a conquered America.
It’s the monthly Hugo episode so we’re joined by Toerag and Days to read the 2001 Hugo Winner, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. You may not have heard of it, it’s a bit obscure.
Possibly the most un-Hugo novel to ever win, and undoubtedly the most successful book to ever win but what do we think of it? Is it worthy of the award and who is it for exactly?
