Michael Andre-Driussi informs me that the Lexicon Urthus, Second Edition, the wonderful reference to Gene Wolfe' Urth series is forthcoming soon
I am pleased to announce that on August 1, 2008, the Second Edition of Lexicon Urthus will go on sale.

Hardcover: $39.95
Paperback:$19.95 (the current Amazon price of $29.95 is wrong and we're fixing it)

Specifications: 440 pages, 6 x 9 inches, 20 b/w illustrations, 10 maps, 24 tables

This is a print on demand book, available through and through us directly, but Amazon will almost certainly offer a discount and we're not doing that yet. We expect most sales to be through Amazon and specialty bookstores, but since there are cases where Amazon might not reach a country or something, we offer to try and fill those orders.
Apparently the book will have an introduction by Wolfe.

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.
