Hyperion Cantos Reading Order

What’s on the Hyperion Cantos Reading Order?


Hyperion Cantos is a series of books written almost like a fantasy/sci-fi version of the Canterbury Tales. It is a series of stories, each focusing on different characters, who all come together for a common purpose in the end. While there aren’t too many books, each one is quite large, and the lore is quite complex. There are also a few short stories included in the series.

If you see anything that should be adjusted, clarified, added, or removed, be sure to let us know over on our contact page. Thank you, and we hope you enjoy this Hyperion Cantos reading order.
