Just read a great little post over at Throne of Salt all about generating a scenario for a TTRPG adventure set in Severian’s world of The Book of the New Sun. He created a d30 table of Unexplained Archaisms and a really clever way to get PCs started that uses the story-telling contest from Citadel of the Autarch that takes place in the Pelerine’s field hospital.
MIT Technology Review has a great interview with Gene Wolfe. The opening touches on some more recent developments in his personal life and then goes on to ask him a lot of standard questions that writers are usually asked in interviews like this one. Though Wolfe does a great job at being his entertaining self and tosses us a few gems.
Chris Gerwel guest writes and easy that examines Gene Wolfe as “The Reliably Unreliable Author” on A Dribble of Ink. It really delves into his history, style and influences quite well.
Last week I discovered (for the first time myself) that “The Shadow of The Torturer” exists in comic book format. Three issues of an unfinished series of seven were published back in 1991. The covers are pretty amazing and I’ll be adding them to the Flickr gallery.
