Product Overview

Lexicon Urthus is an alphabetical dictionary for the complete Urth Cycle by Gene Wolfe: The Shadow of the Torturer; The Claw of the Conciliator; The Sword of the Lictor; The Citadel of the Autarch; the sequel Urth of the New Sun; the novella Empires of Foliage and Flower; the short stories The Cat, The Map, and The Old Woman Whose Rolling Pin Is the Sun ; and Gene Wolfes own commentaries in The Castle of the Otter. The first edition was nominated for a World Fantasy Award. This second edition, available for the first time in paperback, includes 300 new entries. When the first edition was published, Science Fiction Age said: Lexicon Urthus makes a perfect gift for any fan of Wolfes] work, and from the way his words sell, it appears that there are many deserving readers out there waiting. Gary K. Wolfe, in Locus, said: A convenient and well researched glossary of names and terms. . . . It provides enough of a gloss on the novels that it almost evokes Wolfes distant future all by itself. . . . It can provide both a useful reference and a good deal of fun. Donald Keller said, in the New York Review of Science Fiction: A fruitful product of obsession, this is a thorough . . . dictionary of the Urth Cycle. . . . Andre-Driussis research has been exhaustive, and he has discovered many fascinating things . . . it is] head-spinning to confront a myriad of small and large details, some merely interesting, others jawdropping. *Author: Andre-Driussi, Michael/ Wolfe, Gene *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 440 *Publication Date: 2008/08/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.34 x 5.84 x 1.05 inches
