The Book of The New Sun - Gene Wolfe (book review)

Fantasy literature has often been looked down on as a teen market or a less than serious escapist out let. It’s twin sibling, Science Fiction, is often used to discuss big philosophical issues, mortality, the sustainability of culture, dystopian futuristic possibilities and even the very essence of where life came from but Fantasy literature rarely offers anything so deep. 646 more words

Book Review


I once read that most of Wolfe’s main characters aren’t fully aware of the true nature of their world nor the role they play in it. 333 more words



Norstrilia by Cordwainer Smith
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

There’s something a bit strange about only children. Maybe it’s not polite to point it out, but not having siblings seems to leave one without context and make one a little bit more difficult to relate to. 746 more words
