The Urth of the New Sun is in progress now as we look forward into Severian's life after becoming Autarch. We expect to complete our discussion of it and the entire New Sun series in early July.

After we complete New Sun, we'll read the following books and short stories in the order below:

After all of these, we'll start our page-by-page readthrough of Wolfe's The Book of the Long Sun. 

For short stories and non-Wolfe titles, out discussions will be holistic and may include spoilers.

 

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!
