What’s on the Solar Cycle Reading Order?
The Solar Cycle timeline takes all of the books written in the series by Gene Wolfe and places them in a chronological list. The series consists of several smaller series set within the same universe. It all started with the Book of the Sun series, and took off from there with several other series following. Though the series remain rather separate from each other, they are still part of the same continuity.
As with our other timelines, don’t forget to let us know if something is out of place or could use correcting. We love hearing from you.
