Hyperion by Dan Simmons:

Hyperion is an extraordinary story, told in the manner of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales: a series of stories by individuals who have had experiences with the Shrike or with the Time Tombs. The Time Tombs are strange structures on the planet Hyperion that do not seem to be moving in the same time stream as the rest of us. The Shrike is a mysterious figure who strikes at the human beings who settle Hyperion.
