CP website synopsis


In this second volume in The Book of the New Sun, Gene Wolfe, winner of World Fantasy’s Lifetime Achievement Award, Severian travels across a far future world filled with wonder and terror, encountering the Green Man, a traveler from the future, and the Autarch, the ruler Severian is destined to succeed. The novels of Gene Wolfe, says John Clute, are perhaps the most emotionally violent texts we are likely to encounter in the genres of the fantastic. A triumph of imagination and inventiveness. Contains eight full color, full page illustrations by Alex Preuss.
       We will publish all three remaining volumes of the series, including The Sword of the Lictor, The Citadel of the Autarch, The Urth of the New Sun and The Castle of the Otter. Each book is illustrated by German artist Alex Preuss.
