In a Gene Wolfe book, either the map is awfully important and nobody has studied it well
enough, and presenting a half-accurate version is counterproductive, or the map is a mere detail and worrying too much about it is counterproductive.

But if the Comminwealth is supposed to be South America and Nessus is Buenos Aires, then certainly the Gyoll cannot be the Amazonas.

>> Okay. I might be sorry I asked this, but who are the “Gene Wolfe” people out there? As you know, I am doing new editions of the six-book The Book of the New Sun series. One nice thing to have would be new maps. I found an artist in France who does this sort of work with flair and panache, but the artist is looking for help with the basic structure of the The Book of the New Sun’s world. If you’re the Gene Wolfe fan who obsesses over this, and has rigorously analyzed all of the maps thus far created (there’s one on Wikipedia, and one created by Gurps, too, among several others) — your help is requested with this project. All I need to know is what is (are) considered the most regarded and considered the most accurate map(s). My map maker can extrapolate from there and make it into something amazing. If you’re that person, who’s really really really into this, and who knows the subject backwards and forwards, please give me a shout!
