Sword and Citadel

by Gene Wolfe
Release date: 1994
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, fantasy, collection

Recently voted the greatest fantasy of all time, after The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, Gene Wolfe's The Book of the New Sun is an extraordinary epic, set a million years in the future, in a time when our present culture is no longer even a memory.

Severian, the central character, is a torturer, exiled from his guild after falling in love with one of his victims, and journeying to the distant city of Thrax, armed with his ancient executioner's sword, Terminus Est.

This edition contains the final two volumes of this four volume novel, The Sword of the Lictor and The Citadel of the Autarch.
