Sir Able returns to Mythgathr on his steed Cloud, a great mare the color of her name. Able is filled with new knowledge of the ways of the seven-fold world and possessed of great magical secrets. His knighthood now beyond question, Able works to fulfill his vows to his king, his lover, his friends, his gods, and even his enemies. Able must set his world right, restoring the proper order among the denizens of all the seven worlds.
The Wizard is a charming, riveting, emotionally charged tale of wonders, written with all the beauty one would expect from a writer whom Damon Knight called “a national treasure.”

Praise for The Wizard

"Gene Wolfe not only entertains, he invests his work with a complexity and trickiness that place him among the most important American writers of our time. . . . But you don't need to know Wolfe's earlier work to be caught up in a novel that blends, imaginatively and briskly, Arthurian ideals, Celtic legends, and North mythology."--The Washington Post on The Knight

“Wolfe excels at developing a standard fantasy coming-of-age story into something fresh and exciting, a must read for every fan of the genre.”
Romantic Times Bookclub Magazine on The Wizard

The Wizard is a brilliant Celtic knot of a book. It demands a great deal from the reader, but it repays that investment many times over.”—David Drake

"Arising from the same sources as Lord of the Rings, The Wizard Knight is one of the few fantasies that can justly be compared with it."--Booklist on The Wizard

"A major work by the author most frequently hailed as the premier living master of the form...The Wizard Knight maybe be among the most sheerly entertaining of all Wolfe's novels...Its tone is astonishingly well controlled, moving toward great elegance and economy without ever losing the voice of the not-quite articulate boy that Sir Able once was...I can't imagine how anyone can fail to revel in the sheer profligacy of invention and the exhilaration of the prose."--Locus on The Wizard

"This is fantasy at its best: revelatory and inspirational.”
--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on The Wizard

“Another triumph from the greatest writer in the English language alive today. The Knight is astonishing: deep, involving, humane, and absolutely original. This is the start of something big. Wolfe is the best we have. Cherish him.”—Michael Swanwick on The Knight

Wolfe's version of Faerie is both allusive and elusive, beautiful and fatally glamorous.”—Tad Williams on The Knight

“Gene Wolfe is the smartest, subtlest, most dangerous writer alive today, in genre or out of it. If you don't read this book you'll have missed out on something important and wonderful and all the cool people will laugh at you.”--Neil Gaiman on The Knight
