Over the last couple of months I’ve read one great book, Hyperion, and one good book The Fall of Hyperion. Since I finished the last book yesterday, I decided to visit a book store after work today to find what I thought was the third book about Hyperion. Actually, I went to three book stores, but I was unable to find it anywhere.

Just as well, because I was looking for Hyperion Omnibus. Since I’m a moron, I didn’t actually know the meaning of the word “omnibus” and thought it was part of the title of the book.

Omnibus, noun, a book containing reprints of a number of works.

So now you know, too.
