When I read the first two Hyperion books I thought I'd almost figured out what the Shrike was-and then bamm: it's jumping off world, mangling ships and following Aenea down the Tethys
Quote:Technocore -- AI's (artificial intelligences) who had succeeded from human control about three hundred years before the story of hyperion begins -- no one knows where the Technocore resides My theory was that it was created in the far future by the Technocore--but damm-I'll be dammed if I know at this point. And it weighs over 3 metric tons??? OMFG!!!!

I'm trying to think of a more powerful and mysterious invention in all of literature. Now Sandworms are very cool, for instance, but the Shrike Is something else, entirely. *****

To quote several famous fantasy writers...Quote:Read and Find Out!!!

Many of the mysteries about the Shrike will be revealed over the course of the two Endymion novels. ******************************************************

Actually make that - many answers to the mysteries of the Shrike will be revealed over the two Endymion books.
