About this product
- DescriptionGene Wolfe's IN GREEN'S JUNGLE is the sequel to ON BLUE'S WATERS. It is again narrated by Horn, on a quest from his home on the planet Blue to find the heroic leader Paters Silk. Now Horn's identity has become ambiguous, a complex question embedded in the story, whose telling is itself complex, shifting from place to place, present to past. Horn recalls visiting the Whorl, the ermous spacecraft that brought the settlers from Urth, and going thence to the planet Green, home of the blood-drinking alien Inhumi. He remembers a visit to Nessus, on Urth. And people mistake him for Silk, to whom he w bears a remarkable resemblance. IN GREEN'S JUNGLE is a section of Wolfe's major new fiction, The Book of the Short Sun, building through this volume toward a strange and seductive climax in RETURN TO THE WHORL w in hardcover.
