Description: London: Headline, 1990 and 1991 respectively. . . SIGNED FIRST BRITISH PRINTINGS OF THE FIRST 2 VOLUMES OF "THE HYPERION CANTOS" - Two octavo volumes each measuring 9-1/2 inches high by 6-1/4 inches wide. Both volumes are bound in black boards titled in gilt on the spines in their original pictorial dust wrappers. [vi] & 346 pages; and [viii] & 468 pages respectively. The pages are toned as is common with these English editions. Near fine. First English editions, first printings with the full number line on the copyright page of each book. Each book is signed in ink by the author Dan Simmons on the title page, with an additional ink sketch of a rocket taking off drawn by Simmons under his autograph on the title page of "The Fall of Hyperion". This first English edition of "Hyperion" and "The Fall of Hyperion" was published one year after the first American edition of the book. The series title "The Hyperion Cantos" was originally used for the first two books in the series. The title later came to include subsequent volumes, including "Endymion", "The Rise of Endymion" and several short stories. That title for the series, "The Hyperion Cantos" is drawn from the epic poem which Martin Silenus, a recurring character in the series, is writing. Both novels were highly acclaimed. "Hyperion" was the recipient of the Hugo and Locus Awards in 1990 and "The Fall of Hyperion" was awarded both the Locus and British Science Fiction Association Awards in 1991. Very good .
