" In this universe the night was falling; the shadows were lengthening towards an east that would not know another dawn. But elsewhere the stars were still young and the light of morning lingered; and along the path he once had followed, Man would one day go again"

Arthur C. Clarke Against the Fall of Night

Gene Wolfe (May 7, 1931 – April 14, 2019)

I have not read as much Gene Wolfe as I should have but I did read The Book of the New Sun. Rather that providing my comments, I thought I would let you read Michael Dirda and Gene Wolfe's discussion of the series here.


For an overview of his career you might like this tribute from the Guardian.


And a nice post with links can be found at, Battered, Tattered, Yellowed & Creased, Adventures in Fiction


I found this link to fascinating article on Wolfe in the New Republic there;


The Timescale edition above has my favourite Wolfe cover, it is by Don Maitz.
