The Book of the New Sun


Gene Wolfe

Followed by

Book of the Long Sun

Published in four volumes:

  • The Shadow of the Torturer
  • The Claw of the Conciliator
  • The Sword of the Lictor
  • The Citadel of the Autarch

With some sort of 'coda': The Urth of the New Sun (possibly should be given its own page as following this tetrology in the Solar Cycle?).

Bought 'Volume 1: Shadow and Claw' on the 14th of February 2013 from Waterstones, with a voucher Kev got me for Christmas 2012.

Ratings, awards, mentions and recommendationsEdit

Said by someone on Less Wrong to be as good as or better than HPMoR.

Number 6 on the r/PrintSF 2013 poll.
