Been reading Gene Wolfe’s Nightside the Long Sun recently. It’s similar in tone and execution to his earlier 4-book Book of the New Sun series, though it’s slower-paced and somewhat less interesting. I’m only 2/3 of the way through it, though, so maybe more stuff happens later. Silk, the protagonist, is also a bit less interesting than Severian, the protagonist of the earlier series.

I’ve written a few more reviews for the books in my library, so the search pages don’t look quite as sparse.
