TobeyTheScavengerMonk
Castle of Days | Gene Wolfe
post image

I was truly saddened to learn of the passing of Gene Wolfe. I just read my 14th book by him last month, and every one has been dream-like and strange, pushing the boundaries of meta-narrative frameworks & unreliable narrators, each in their own vastly different ways.

The Book of the New Sun & The Urth of the New Sun are rightly held as masterworks of science fiction/fantasy & are some of the very best books I‘ve ever read.

Requiescat in pace.

Pickpick

The Book of the New Sun is one of the greatest works of fiction that I have ever read.

This series, the Book of the Long Sun, is set in the same universe but separated by vast gulfs of space and time. It follows a naive young priest named Silk who sets out to save his failing abbey. His journey leads him through political revolution to meet the gods of the gigantic starship in which he lives and ends in an ambiguity that is textbook Wolfe.

TobeyTheScavengerMonk The Book of the Long Sun is NOT one of the greatest works of fiction I have ever read, and indulged some of Wolfe‘s more frustrating writing quirks in the last 2 books. Next year I‘ll finish up the 12 book Solar Cycle with the Book of the Short Sun trilogy. 1y

My fur baby girl is 7 months today, 95 pounds, and her head comes up past my hip. She is a massive heart with fur and I could not love her more. ❤️🐶

#HappyEaster! We celebrated yesterday so today is an all read day and for snacking on leftovers.. what little they left! 😊😂

I received these beautiful Easter tulips from my son‘s girlfriend 😍 The cross-stitch in the background was stitched with love by my eldest son, he has a wicked sense of #humour! 😳😏 and tagged book is amazing but harrowing in parts.

Was gonna do a bunch of #bookhaul posts, but not sure if I have enough to say about each book. Just checked #goodreads for what looked good. Going clockwise: #nyrb edition , #penguin edition, trilogy collection, nice cover texture.

#AFlowerInTheTitle... Published in 1982 it‘s one of my top 10 favorite historical romances, a smart, sexy, fun and lovely restelling of The Beauty And The Beast.. a story as old as time.. ❤️❤️❤️
