Masterworks Spotlight: Sword and Citadel

A couple of weeks ago, we were singing the praises of Shadow and Claw, the first half of Gene Wolfe‘s masterpiece The Book of the New Sun. Shadow and Claw contains BSFA and World Fantasy Award-winner The Shadow of the Torturer and Nebula Award-winner The Claw of the Conciliator.

Now, we’re delighted to be presenting the second half Wolfe’s acclaimed quartet, Sword and Citadel: The Book of the New Sun Volume 2, comprising the British Fantasy Award-winning The Sword of the Lictor and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award-winning The Citadel of the Autarch.

We don’t really have anything to add to the post on Shadow and Claw, which was, after all, less than two weeks ago, excpet to ask, with all due respect and affection, if you haven’t read this masterpiece . . .
