This new Tor Essentials edition ofSword & Citadel contains a new introduction by historian and novelist Ada Palmer, author of the award-winningToo Like the Lightning.
Gene Wolfe has been called the finest writer the science fiction world has yet produced by the Washington Post.
THE BOOK OF THE NEW SUN is unanimously acclaimed as Wolfe's most remarkable work, hailed as "a masterpiece of science fantasy comparable in importance to the major works of Tolkien and Lewis" by Publishers Weekly and "one of the most ambitious works of speculative fiction in the twentieth century" by the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.
The Sword of the Lictor is the third volume in Wolfe's remarkable epic, chronicling the odyssey of the wandering pilgrim called Severian, driven by a powerful and unfathomable destiny, as he carries out a dark mission far from his home.
The Citadel of the Autarch brings The Book of the New Sun to its harrowing conclusion, as Severian clashes in a final reckoning with the dread Autarch, fulfilling an ancient prophecy that will alter forever the realm known as Urth.
