    1. Ah, another Wolfe reference book by Michael Andre Driussi, the writer of THE New Sun reference book, Lexicon Urthus and this one does not disappoint either While LU was concerned solely with details of the New Sun books and short stories, this volume is a just as exhaustible reference book of Wolfe s seven volume Long Sun Short Sun series As with its predecessor, this one lists all the names found in those texts along with their meanings and origins, maps, and a general glossary of obscure terms [...]

    2. Another great dictionary of the works of Gene Wolfe, this time covering Wolfe s Long Sun and Short Sun series Great for helping suss out some of Wolfe s subtle allusions, but do not read before you have read the series it is based on

    3. Only for Gene Wolfe geeks, obviously, but the love and attention to detail that went into the book is remarkable.
