It will probably be titled _Gene Wolfe's The Book of the New Sun: A Chapter Guide_. In some ways it is like a "Literary Supplement" to _Lexicon Urthus_, but it is quite different for being entirely linear. The book cover illustration is coming together, and that is usually a sign that things are nearly done!(less)

Now that I have finished it, a few words.

It is a truly monumental work.

I will only express positive points here.

One thing I had not anticipated was the occasional humor, which is sly, deadpan, gallows, etc. I wondered if this was a strategy to lighte

I admit I have not read a lot of Romance novels . . .

This is my second favorite of the No-Frills books. Again, as in the case of the No-Frills Mystery, I detect no parody. Again, I have the sense that this is the pure stuff.

“In my GEnie days (1991-1996?) I discussed the fiction of Gene Wolfe with Greg Feeley, Neil Gaiman, Joe Mayhew, Michael Swanwick, and Jeff Wilson, among others. I published Lexicon Urthus in 1994. The Lexicon brought me letters from David Langford. It also brought me friendship with Alice K. Turner (1939-2015), and she talked me into joining the Urth List in 1997. There I met many, but for this application I will limit the roll to Marc Aramini, Robert Borski, Craig Brewer, Bill Carmichael, Roy C. Lackey, Jonathan Laidlow, Dan Parmenter, Nigel Price, Pedro Jorge Romero, and James Wynn.”
Michael Andre-Driussi, Gene Wolfe's The Book of the New Sun: A Chapter Guide

“There was a time when I could put the palm of my hand flat on the front of a tattered paperback called The Dying Earth and feel the magic seeping through the cardboard: Turjan of Miir, Liane the Wayfarer, T’sais, Chun the Unavoidable. Nobody I knew had so much as heard of that book, but I knew it was the finest book in the world. (Castle of Days, 211)”
