The Knight : Book One of The Wizard Knight is available now on Amazon.com. You could even have it for Christmas if you want to pay extra for fast shipping.

(Oh and I appreciate greatly it if you order through my weblink, since as an amazon associate I get a small gratuity, which helps...)

Gene Wolfe News and Rumors Logged by Paul Duggan

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.
