    Simply Superb

    Gene Wolfe is a treasure. A true original. Authors hold him in awe. Readers fumble trying to express the magic of his work. Astounding stories, perfect craft, and a depth of emotional and philosophical courage that is nearly impossible to describe. Among its many delights and shocks, ON BLUE'S WATERS is perhaps the most moving portrait of a haunted man that I have ever read. Under the guise of a typical science fiction extended adventure series Wolfe is creating an entirely new thing: a meditation on the journey of faith and the search for truth refracted through a dazzling array of unforgettable characters. Why doesn't everyone know Gene Wolfe is the best writer alive?

    Exotic Mind Bender

    Follow Horn on his journey to find Patera Silk across the planet Blue in order to get back to Whorl. Along the way he starts chronicling his journey and he appears to be himself and at times jumping backwards and forwards in his journals Silk. Good read where one wants to know more, but it can be a bit of a mind trip when he starts exhibiting references to himself as one person when in fact he isn't. Story picks up a decade after the exodus of most of the population of the Whorl.
