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

Sam Weber on illustrating the Folio limited edition of The Book of the New Sun:
Gene Wolfe was an American science fiction and fantasy writer. He was noted for his dense, allusive prose as well as the strong influence of his Catholic faith, to which he converted after marrying a Catholic. He was a prolific short story writer and a novelist, and has won many awards in the field.
