    1. You have to love that this book exists. At the same time, this book is full of The Wildest Of Wild Ass Guessing, to the point where it becomes clear that the writer is seeing connections using his own constructed name classification scheme.The really strange thing is that while this book goes into huge efforts to figure out who characters really are, it tries very hard to collapse characters into each other. Paeon, for example -- this is a bit character mentioned by the last Autarch in passing. [...]


    2. An interesting read, but so full of preposterous over-reaching that it's hard to take any of it seriously.


    3. I'm not sure really. Borski's certainly done his homework, but I ultimately find a lot of his theories unconvincing, mainly because I never really bought his "second rule of names." To his credit, Borski recognizes the tenuousness of his argument, but he doesn't really offer much in the way of proof other than personal conviction. More, I think he doesn't pay enough attention to two key factors 1.) the angelic character of the hierodules/hierogammates 2.) the deeply Catholic character of the wor [...]


    4. I picked this up because while I enjoyed Book of the New Sun, the further I got into it, the less I understood it. What I was hoping for was a book that could explain what the heck was happening in New Sun. That isn't what this is. (Nor does it claim to be, so I simply had the wrong expectations.) There is lots of information in here which helps to decipher New Sun, but it seems to be intended for someone who already has a pretty good understanding of the book and wants to dive deeper into some [...]


    5. Provides some great background and theories about the goings-on in Book of the New Sun. Not as essential as background material to BotNS as Lexicon Urthus in my opinion (and I'm not sure I agree with all his conclusions), but something Wolfe fans will definitely want for their libraries.



    6. It's several hundred pages' worth of speculation about the most circumspect work of SF ever published, The Book of the New Sun. What's not to enjoy?
