This entry will be the penultimate Science Fiction post.
Gene Wolfe is the renowned author of The Book of the New Sun. I have already displayed my hard cover collection of this series, so the below editions are those acquired in paperback back when they were issued.
I can’t say that I’ve read Wolfe’s entire oeuvre, but I did also really like his series about the amnesiac soldier Latro - Soldier in the Mist and Soldier of Arete. I have yet to read the latest book in that series, Soldier of Sidon, having decided to wait for a mass market paperback edition when and if it is ever published.
As for the The Book of the Long Sun, which is set in the same universe as The Book of the New Sun, I have only read the first volume, Nightside the Long Sun and for whatever reason didn’t go on to the rest.
And to finish the authors whose names begin with W, here is Dave Wolverton’s, long out of print novel On My Way To Paradise simply because it has a great cover. It wasn’t a bad read either if I recollect.
