A Dictionary for the Urth Cycle
This is a wonderful book, and a must-have for the dedicated Wolfe enthusiast.
It is the result of four years of research by Michael Andre-Driussi.
There are 952 entries, but it is more than simply a dictionary.
As the beginning states:
Lexicon for Gene Wolfe's
The Book of the New Sun,
The Urth of the New Sun, and
Empires of Foliage and Flower
well as Shorter Stories, including
glosses on Biblical Allusions,
Ships of Sail and Oar,
Archaic English Words,
Diverse Arms and Armor,
Extinct and Exotic Animals,
Latin Terms military and civic,
in addition to Myths and Legends
from China, Greece, Arabia, Ocenania
Rome, India, Persia, and South America
It is nicely illustrated, including several maps. It is a hardcover
edition, 304 pages. ISBN 0-9642795-9-2
I am in no way associated with Mr. Andre-Driussi or his publisher,
Sirius Fiction. I just think this book is worth getting.
