The Solar Cycle

A thousand ages in thy sight
Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

—  epigraph, “Shadow of the Torturer”, Gene Wolfe

I am starting a re-read of the entire Solar Cycle series by Gene Wolfe. This series of posts will document my thoughts and reactions as I slowly work my way through the novels over the coming months.
