The Book of the New Sun (1980–83) is a series of four science fantasy novels or one four-volume novel by the American author Gene Wolfe. Alternatively, it is a series comprising the original tetralogy, a 1983 collection of essays, and a 1987 sequel.[a] Either way, it inaugurated the so-called "Solar Cycle" (below) that Wolfe continued after 1987 by setting other multi-volume works in the same universe.[1]

Gene Wolfe had originally intended the story to be a 40,000 words novella called "The Feast of Saint Catherine", meant to be published in one of the Obitanthologies, but during the writing it continued to grow in size.[2][3] Despite being published with a year between each book, all four books were written and completed during his free time without anyone's knowledge when he was still an editor of Plant Engineering, allowing him to write at his own pace and take his time.[4]

The tetralogy chronicles the journey of Severian, a disgraced journeyman torturer who is exiled and forced to travel to Thrax and beyond. It is a first-person narrative, ostensibly translated by Wolfe into contemporary English, set in the distant future when the Sun has dimmed and Earth is cooler (a "Dying Earth" story).

In 1998, Locus magazine ranked the tetralogy number three among 36 all-time best fantasy novels before 1990, based on a poll of subscribers.[5][b]

I have been working as an archi tacture designer since my graduation, I work as a freelancer illustrator and designer in spare time.I searched inspritions from movies and games respectively and was invited to showcase my artworks on the Blizzard official website for several times as the most recognized inoffical illustrator related to World of Warcraft. I also attended the Blizzard Carnival in 2011 with invitation.
In recent years, I have been immersed in creations of the glass painting style artworks among which the recreation of Lord of the Rings series won me many honors. My first contact to the trilogy was when the movie directed by Peter Jackson was on the show in 2002, I read the Lord of the Rings and the Hobits books after I saw the movie. I doodled some pictures for fun, much to the visual effect of the movie than to substantial appreciation for the masterpiece itself. I gained a more profound understanding though extensive reading later, now I would read the novel every 2 years, whenever I read it I will forget time passing and keep reading thoughout the whole night.
Then I had a chance to know the glass painting style and felt it must be great If I adopt this style to tell a story because it was endowed with a sense of religious magnificence yet the plot is usually unsophisticated, with reasonable arrange of the images, a chapter from the book could be represented in a single picture.
It happened that the Deviantart website was hosting an online Lord of the Rings fan art challenge and an artwork of mine Rest in Gildor's Forest was positively approved, then I started to create the Lord of the Rings series.
Later my artworks Roselolin’s Gift and The Grieve Over A Twilight Star received favorable comments and being posted on international websites,eventually they were selected into the One Ring exhibition in Los Angeles in 2013.

I love the style you use on your Middle-Earth illustrations! It is something different from what I normally see. It is very dynamic too which brings the story to life.

Your artwork is incredibly unique, and probably the best example of its kind I've seen on DA or off.  Please keep it up!
