Finished "Putting the Science in Science Fiction" for more accurate sci-fi writing.



Still very slowly working on IT, started "The Time Machine" as well and sometime soon-ish, "Aliens: Steel Egg".

I’m SO GLAD you’re enjoying it, and you’re really honing in on what makes (made ) Wolfe such an effective writer — his ability to such the reader in and create an experience that mimics that of actual life through the profession of the story. Kind of meta-narrative. Love it.

Haven’t read your Claw review yet, but will. Just saw Sword of the Lictor. Glad you’re seeing this through!

If you finish the four main books, you’ll only be the second person I “know” to have done so.

(BOT Long Sun is an *excellent* but utterly different semi-sequel if you crave more when your done with BOT New Sun)

Yes indeed. As you originally stated, the BOTNS is like a mindworm, and once it is in your head, it seems as real, if not more real, than the day to day around me. cool. stuff.

Rob,
Nice review of Claw of the Conciliator!

But this bugged me:

Quote:
After a [b]hiatus of quite a few months[b], in which I have occupied my mind with books on gender-disparity and anthropology, the horrors of Soviet-era gulags, early science fiction, modern science fiction, and Joan Didion’s exploration of her grief following her husband’s sudden death, among other books, I turned my attention to the second volume of Gene Wolfe’s The Book of the New Sun tetra-logy, The Claw of the Conciliator...


BRO IT WAS YEARS! Straight up YEARS, fam. Lol.

I am really glad you’ve lived the books so far, though. Can’t wait to read the next review.
