I'm trying to recall a sci-fi series of books. I can't remember much except that people could teleport across vast distances, such that you might have a house with rooms on different planets. The threat was humans who had traveled at sub-light speed so long that they had mutated.

I don't think this was the Deathstalker series, but nothing else comes to mind. Can anyone give me a hand?

Hyperion (Simmons novel) possibly?

Sounds like Hyperion and Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons.

I thought about Hyperion, but then thought, no, that's the spiked monster story. May need to read it again.

Sounds familiar, but the story I'm thinking about had a "event" that occurred and some people found themselves stuck in the wrong part of the house on a destroyed planet. It might be a sub plot line out of the Hyperion series. The Shrike is the monster that likes to spike things.
