Read full description of the books:



La sombra del Torturador, primer volumen de El Libro del Sol Nuevo, nos presentó a Severian, un torturador que ha sido enviado al exilio por haberse enamorado de una de sus víctimas y haberle permitido que se quitara la vida en vez de someterla a los refinados métodos de tortura en los que Severian ha sido instruido con tanto cuidado. En este segundo volumen Severian tiene consigo una gema llamada la Garra del Conciliador, una poderosa reliquia del Maestro de Poder, figura legendaria de proporciones míticas. Armado con la Garra y con su espada Terminus Est, Severian continúa su viaje a Thrax, la ciudad de su exilio. En el camino encuentra maravillas tales como las criaturas parecidas a monos, de cuerpos vellosos y resplandecientes; los extraños rituales canibalísticos que despiertan en Severian recuerdos y pensamientos de su amada Thecla, y la centelleante Fuente Vática, en la que echa una ofrenda para enterarse de lo que le depara el destino.

"Una obra maestra de la narrativa fantástica, tan importante como las obras mayores de J.R.R. Tolkien y C.S. Lewis." - Publisher's Weekly

"Se necesita un artista nato para atreverse a proponer una atractiva historia acerca de un aprendiz de torturador que pasa de la juventud a la edad madura en una sociedad tan intricada que ya no se preocupa por el propósito de las naves estelares... El resultado es una narrativa de ominosa oscuridad que se lee volviendo ávidamente las páginas." - Algys Budrys

Read information about the author

Ebook La Garra del Conciliador read Online! Gene Wolfe is an American science fiction and fantasy writer. He is noted for his dense, allusive prose as well as the strong influence of his Catholic faith, to which he converted after marrying a Catholic. He is a prolific short story writer and a novelist, and has won many awards in the field.

The Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award is given by SFWA for ‘lifetime achievement in science fiction and/or fantasy.’ Wolfe joins the Grand Master ranks alongside such legends as Connie Willis, Michael Moorcock, Anne McCaffrey, Robert Silverberg, Ursula K. LeGuin, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury and Joe Haldeman. The award will be presented at the 48th Annual Nebula Awards Weekend in San Jose, CA, May 16-19, 2013.

While attending Texas A&M University Wolfe published his first speculative fiction in The Commentator, a student literary journal. Wolfe dropped out during his junior year, and was drafted to fight in the Korean War. After returning to the United States he earned a degree from the University of Houston and became an industrial engineer. He edited the journal Plant Engineering for many years before retiring to write full-time, but his most famous professional engineering achievement is a contribution to the machine used to make Pringles potato crisps. He now lives in Barrington, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.

A frequent Hugo nominee without a win, Wolfe has nevertheless picked up several Nebula and Locus Awards, among others, including the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement and the 2012 Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award. He is also a member of the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.
