Soldier of Sidon Wolfe's Next Project

Nick Gevers reports
Last night, confirmation from GW that he is at work on Soldier of Sidon, set mainly in Egypt when it was a province of the Persian Empire. He comments that his research shows the ancient Egyptians in a warm, sympathetic light. A fourth volume may well follow.
Soldier of Sidon would be a continuation of the series about Latro, begin in Soldier in the Mist and Soldier of Arete and collected in the new omnibus Latro in the Mist

The wonderful dictionary of the New Sun books, Lexicon Urthus is sadly out of print and will remain so indefinitely.

But some mis-bound extra copies are being auctioned by the publisher on ebay.

The Tree Is My Hat voice adaptation

Gene Wolfe's story "The Tree is My Hat" was adapted as a voice performance and performed at the World Horror Convention of 2002 in Chicago.

You can download a legitimate MP3 of the performance (which features the voice acting of Neil Gaiman, P.D. Cacek, Liz Mandville Greeson, Gary Simmers, Steve Scholz and John Librizzi).

We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard, defining edges. When soldiers take their oath they are given a coin, an asimi stamped with the profile of the Autarch. Their acceptance of that coin is their acceptance of the special duties and burdens of military life--they are soldiers from that moment, though they may know nothing of the management of arms. I did not know that then, but it is a profound mistake to believe that we must know of such things to be influenced by them, and in fact to believe so is to believe in the most debased and superstitious kind of magic. The would-be sorcerer alone has faith in the efficacy of pure knowledge; rational people know that things act of themselves or not at all.
The Shadow of the Torturer, Gene Wolfe.
