The Urth of the New Sun is in progress now as we look forward into Severian's life after becoming Autarch. Here's what you need to know:

  • We will read 1-2 chapters per episode (so 1-2 chapters per week).

  • We will be doing a "minimal spoilers" reading of the book (you can't guarantee no spoilers with an author like Wolfe), so it should be pretty safe to read along your first time with us.


Please Note: This podcast is intended to be listened to in chronological order by title.  Please pick the title you'd like to listen to from "categories" start with the oldest episode of your title first!

We're always interested in more conversation, so please tweet us or email us if you have something to say!
