Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two novels combined in this omnibus (Caldé of the Long Sun and Exodus from the Long Sun) comprise the second half of Gene Wolfe's long novel, The Book of the Long Sun. Publishers Weekly calls it "One of the major SF series of the decade."

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:

"Consistently high ambition and achievement." The New York Times

Review:

"One of the major SF series of the decade...a bona fide masterpiece." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Few writers dare to attempt a Great Work; Wolfe attempts it and succeeds." The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction

Synopsis:

The two novels combined in this omnibus (Caldé of the Long Sun and Exodus from the Long Sun) comprise the second half of Gene Wolfe's long novel, The Book of the Long Sun.

Gene Wolfe has been called "the finest writer the science fiction world has yet produced" by The Washington Post. A former engineer, he has written numerous books and won a variety of awards for his SF writing.

The two complete novels combined in this omnibus, Caldé of the Long Sun and Exodus from the Long Sun, comprise the second halfthat is, Volumes 3 and 4, respectivelyof Wolfe's masterful tetralogy, The Book of the Long Sun.

As The Washington Post Book World has noted, this sweeping and brilliantly constructed four-book series is the work of "the best novelist in America that you've never heard of, let alone read, [if] you don't bother with SF . . . [Wolfe's] Book of the Long Sun is as ambitious as Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow, as intricate and beautifully written as Nabokov's Pale Fire."

"[The Book of the Long Sun exhibits] consistently high ambition and achievement."The New York Times

"One of the major SF series of the decade . . . A bona fide masterpiece."Publishers Weekly

"Few writers dare to attempt a Great Work; Wolfe attempts it [here] and succeeds."The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
