Publisher Description

The long awaited sequel to Gene Wolfe's four-volume classic, The Book of the New Sun. We return to the world of Severian, now the Autarch of Urth, as he leaves the planet on one of the huge spaceships of the alien Hierodules to travel across time and space to face his greatest test, to become the legendary New Sun or die. The strange, rich, original spaceship scenes give way to travels in time, wherein Severian revisits times and places which fill in parts of the background of the four-volume work, that will thrill and intrigue particularly all readers of the earlier books. But The Urth of the New Sun is an independent structure all of a piece, an integral masterpiece to shelve beside the classics, one itself.

The Urth of the New Sun

Gene Wolfe is one of the greatest writers alive. He is unique and masterful. He has the great skill of presenting an image or event or character to the reader and inducing them to perceive with fresh eyes. Was it Graham Greene who said- The writer should not disturb the reader's dream? Wolfe blindfolds you and leads into mystery and pulls the blindfold off, revealing an entirely new cosmos.
