The Wizard Knight : (Comprising The Knight and The Wizard) by Gene Wolfe

(0 reviews)
12.99 USD
“Gene Wolfe is the smartest, subtlest, most dangerous writer alive today, in genre or out of it. This book [is] important and wonderful.” —Neil Gaiman on The Knight

A novel in two volumes, The Wizard Knight is in the rare company of works of fantasy like The Once and Future King, or The Wizard of Earthsea, that drink directly from the wellspring of myth. Now it appears in a single-volume edition for the first time.

A young man in his teens is transported from our world to a magical realm consisting of seven levels of reality. Transformed by magic into a grown man of heroic proportions, he takes the name Sir Able of the High Heart and sets out on a quest to find the sword that has been promised to him, the blade that will help him fulfill his ambition to become a true hero—a true knight.

Inside, however, Sir Able remains a boy, and he must grow in every sense to survive what lies ahead...

“[Wolfe] should enjoy the same rapt attention we afford to Thomas Pynchon, Toni Morrison, and Cormac McCarthy.” —The Washington Post on The Knight

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

With a new introduction by Yves Meynard, acclaimed author of The Book of Knights.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.



Praise for this book

Praise for The Knight



"A fine, carefully crafted novel, filled with mythic adventure and populated by fantastic creatures. I can't wait to read the next book."—Brian Herbert

"Sir Able of the High Heart is unlike any other hero, part Candide and part Conan the Barbarian, and the worlds in which he travels are also appropriately unique. Wolfe's version of Faerie is both allusive and elusive, beautiful and fatally glamorous."—Tad Williams

Praise for The Wizard



“Wofe's words was over the reader with transparent grace and charming playfulness as he spins his profoundly imaginative, metaphysically complex, yet ever-entertaining tale with astonishing naturalness.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“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
