Gene Wolfe
Illustrated by Sam Weber
Introduced by Neil Gaiman
Limited to 750 hand-numbered sets

A signed and numbered limited edition of Gene Wolfe’s award-winning masterpiece of speculative fiction illustrated by Sam Weber and introduced by Neil Gaiman.

Limited Edition

‘A masterpiece. Gene Wolfe is a wizard, a torturer, frightening, delightful. Beware! This is magic stuff!’

  1. Ursula K. Le Guin

A work that subverts, elevates and transcends its genre, this exclusive edition of Gene Wolfe’s epic features a powerful new introduction by Neil Gaiman as well as striking binding designs, decorative initials and haunting illustrations by Sam Weber. Sadly, Gene Wolfe died on 14 April so will not see the final publication. Shortly before his death, he signed the limitation labels for each of the 750 hand-numbered copies. These have also been signed by Neil Gaiman and Sam Weber.
