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.” 

Michael Swanwick has had the opportunity to preview a copy, and even gives us a small taste of it on his blog, Flogging Babel.  I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a copy when it’s finally released!

What Gene Wolfe Expects of His Readers

Michael Andre-Driussi has published a new article on irosf.com in which he uses The Urth of the New Sun to shed some light on the many mysteries that shroud The Book of the New Sun.  As with everything Michael writes it’s an enjoyable and enlightening read.  Just reading it myself has me wanting to pick the Urth Cycle back up for another go.
