I was so happy to find this: The Gene Wolfe Book Club. It’s a forum, all set up to discuss the 12 novels of Gene Wolfe’s Solar Cycle.
What’s even better is that word is getting out there before the discussion has started. The first book (The Shadow of the Torturer) is scheduled for discussion on January 20. That’s plenty of time to get this one read – it’s not much more than 200 pages long. From there, they plan to discuss a book a month for 12 months.
If you haven’t read The Book of the New Sun and have been thinking about it, please consider joining me at that forum and participating in the discussion. Gene Wolfe’s writing is rich with interesting topics.
