Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1975, Peace is a spellbinding, brilliant tour de force of the imagination. The melancholy memoir of Alden Dennis Weer, an embittered old man living out his last days in a small midwestern town, the novel reveals a miraculous dimension as the narrative unfolds. For Weers imagination has the power to obliterate time and reshape reality, transcending even death itself. Powerfully moving and uncompromisingly honest, Peace ranks alongside the finest literary works of our time.


Hailed as “one of the literary giants of SF” by the Denver Post, Gene Wolfe has repeatedly won the fields highest honors, including the Nebula, the Hugo, and the World Fantasy awards. Peace is Gene Wolfes first full-length novel, a work that shows the genius that later flourished in such acclaimed works as The Fifth Head of Cerberus and The Book of The New Sun.


Mesmerizing sci-fi from the author Neil Gaiman calls “possibly the finest living American writer”
