  • Comment: While this is the first book publication for Dan Simmons and was a critical success, it was printed in a limited run and is not a common item. I personally found the book to be interesting, but not something that kept my attention like "Carrion Comfort" or "Hyperion". Nevertheless, the descriptions of India are quite chilling.
