It is the far future, and the giant spaceship, The Whorl, has traveled for forgotten generations toward its destination. Lit inside by the artificial Long Sun, The Whorl is so huge that whole cities can be seen in the sky. And the gods of The Whorl have begun to intervene in human affairs. An entirely unexpected future awaits as Patera Silk and the other inhabitants are confronted with the world of an alien race. Wolfe's great work is complete, with the mysterious fullness of life itself.
Praise for Exodus From The Long Sun
“Exodus from the Long Sun is a wonderful finish to a sequence that stands beside The Book of the New Sun as one of the greatest long science fiction novels ever written. Gene Wolfe is the King of the Slingshot Ending and this time the finale is a veritable Roman candle of heartstopping action and mind-boggling scale shifts. I read this book on a flight to Antarctica and kept forgetting to look out the window of the plane. Now all we can say is, Please start another one, Mr. Wolfe.” —Kim Stanley Robinson
