Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Litany of the Long Sun contains the full texts of Nightside the Long Sun and Lake of the Long Sun, that together make up the first half of The Book of the Long Sun. This great work is set on a huge generation starship in the same future as the classic Book of the New Sun (also available in two volumes from Orb).

Review:

"The Book of the Long Sun is many books in one — each of them more impressive than any book I expect to read in the near future. Thrilling, mysterious, heartbreaking, funny...it releases delayed intonations of pleasure days after you've read it." SF Eye

Review:

"Gene Wolfe is as good a writer as there is today....I feel a little bit like a musical contemporary attempting to tell people what's good about Mozart." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Wolfe is quite simply a superb writer." The Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Today quite possibly the most important writer in the SF field." The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction

Review:

"Gene Wolfe is a national treasure." Damon Knight

Review:

"Wolfe is our Melville." Ursula K. Le Guin

Synopsis:

This omnibus of Nightside of the Long Sun and Lake of the Long Sun is this "modern-day Homer" (Washington Post Book World) at his best.
