Finally got around to asking my son about the Gene Wolf book he brought (the only book he brought to the forecast winter storm and black out). He looked at me and said "Mom, it was the first one" and shook his head, as if I were a dolt for not knowing :) So, it was the "first one" of some series...

Series possibilities would be New Sun, Long Sun, Short Sun. Which 3 series really comprise one long series. Or possibly the Latro series

New Sun was the first written series, of which the title of the first book is SHADOW OF THE TORTURER. Long Sun was the second written series, of that three; first book is NIGHTSIDE THE LONG SUN. The third written series was Short Sun, first book, ON BLUE'S WATERS.

The Latro series were 3 books, first one SOLDIER OF THE MIST.

And he did a 2 book sort of series, titles were KNIGHT and WIZARD, KNIGHT was first.

Could have been one of these.

Did he like it?

He loves Mr Wolf's work, in fact, he has been "making disciples" of his friends.

I tend to spread the word, too. But I also warn that it is not easy reading.

For example, he referred me to that song that Wolf wrote, ""Let the Sunshine In" -- many years ago. It isn't much like his books though.

I would put a smilie here, but the smilies won't work for me until I get JavaScript enabled again. It would be the head-scratching smilie.

Banned for reminding me that the steroids haven't completely done their work. Whoops, wrong thread.
