I... highly recommend *The* *Book of the New Sun* if you’re looking for a
sci-fi/fantasy read to satisfy your appetite until the next book of
Martin’s *A* *Song of Ice and Fire* is released. Wolfe’s work rates higher
on the literary scale, but falls just short of Martin’s where
fully-realized characters are concerned. And where Martin’s books are
driven by action and intrigue, Wolfe’s are driven by unraveling a complex
narrative arc with incredibly tricksy literary elements.
