"Departure of the traveling parties from "Resolute" & "Intrepid"
Dan Simmons is a versatile award-winning author of science fiction, fantasy, and horror novels. My dad is a big fan of his Hugo Award-winning Hyperion series. Recently I read The Terror, which combines historical fiction, mythology, fantasy, and horror. The Terror is based on Franklin’s journey to search out the Northwest Passage. Simmons did an immense amount of historical research in putting the book together, then he wove that together with local mythology and a healthy dose of his wonderfully twisted imagination to create a spellbinding story. The description of place is so strong that it becomes another character, relentlessly driving the story to a surprising conclusion.  If you’re looking for something interesting to read, try some Dan Simmons.
