lexicon urthusA Where Can I Buy Allopurinol, decade or so ago, when I first discovered Gene Wolfe's opus The Book of the New Sun, I looked hungrily around for more. More books by the same author, Allopurinol canada, 150mg Allopurinol, of course, but also books about the New Sun itself; books of criticism, Allopurinol japan, 100mg Allopurinol, and of reference. Wolfe himself has written some excellent and fascinating essays on his story, 250mg Allopurinol, Allopurinol overseas, collected in Castle of the Otter (and recollected in The Castle of Days). But there was another book that caught my eye, 40mg Allopurinol, Allopurinol craiglist, a combination encyclopaedia and dictionary for the Urth cycle called the Lexicon Urthus from small press Sirius Fiction. As an impulse purchase I picked up a hardback copy and immediately fell in love, Allopurinol paypal.

Lexicon Urthus is the creation of Wolfe scholar Michael Andre-Driussi, and functions as a guide to the weird and sometimes obscure world of Wolfe's far-future Urth, Where Can I Buy Allopurinol. Allopurinol us, But not only that, the book itself is a rewarding read itself, Allopurinol mexico. 50mg Allopurinol, Not only are aspects of the world of the New Sun made clear -- especially in the case of the extraordinary vocabulary on display -- but further questions and trains of thought are suggested that through the doors of investigation into Wolfe's rewarding series wide-open. Lexicon Urthus is truly a feast of the intellect, Allopurinol india. Allopurinol coupon, When I had heard that a second edition had been released I assumed it was essentially a reprinting of the now extremely hard to find first,with some errata and corrections included, Allopurinol uk. Where Can I Buy Allopurinol, Not so. 500mg Allopurinol, Lexicon Urthus, Second Edition boasts an enormous amount of new material, 20mg Allopurinol, 10mg Allopurinol, including 300 new entries (up from the original 950+), extended commentary, 1000mg Allopurinol, Allopurinol australia, a complete synopsis of the books (an enjoyable read all by itself), and greatly improved maps.It's easy to say that this is by far the definitive reference to Gene Wolfe's The Book of the New Sun and, Allopurinol ebay, 30mg Allopurinol, in the burngeoning world of Wolfe-scholarship, Lexicon Urthus is still the go-to book for questions and theories, Allopurinol usa. 750mg Allopurinol, So, just what will we find in a random browse through the book, 200mg Allopurinol. (A practice that is, by the way, a whole lot of fun by itself). Well, we learn that athame is a greek name for a Warlock sword, that the initiation rights of the beast handlers of Nessus has echoes of the Roman cult of Mithra,that Echopraxia is the habit of mimicking others (and gives it's name to a brothel that imitates the  House Absolute in the story), that gyves are shackles and hipparchs cavalry commanders, omophagists are eaters of raw flesh, peridot is a variety of gemstone, and that zoanthorpes, men who regress into beasts, was a term for madmen who thought  themselves animals. Wolfe uses real words, with greek, latin, and germanic roots, to flesh-put his strange world of the far future, and any of them can be understood from context and the English-speakers general familiarity with many of these root words.

But Lexicon Urthus isn't just about defining weird words, but about connections. Wolfe's many classical allusions are detailed within, as are theories of things only hinted at in the narrative. The extraordinary depth of the New Sun series

a feast.

I may have to pick up a copy. I read Wolfe’s entire “Solar Cycle” for the first time this year, and I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a work I so immediately felt I’d need to re-read multiple times. I picked up a copy of Castle of Days, and tried wading into Urth.net, but the Lexicon definitely looks like an interesting addition.

I know what you mean about immediately feeling the need to reread New Sun (and sometimes I can’t believe it’s been so long since I have, I’m definitely due!). LU really is indispensable, and a lot of fun on top of it.
