New Sun is already been made into a setting for the GURPS rpg, but IGN has a poll up (scroll down) now asking if (among other works) the Book of the New Sun should be made into a video game.

I've wanted 28mm miniatures of the forces at the battle in Citadel of the Autarch myself.

Oh, and MacMillan and Amazon seem to have worked things out for now.

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.
