Michael Andre-Driussi To Publish Long Sun Guide

The man who helped us unravel some of the mystery behind the Books of the New Sun with his “Lexicon Urthus” will soon be doing the same for the Books of the Long Sun and Short Sun with his newest publication “Gate of Horn, Book of Silk: A Guide To Gene Wolfe’s The Book of the Long Sun and the Book of the Short Sun.”
