August Books 13) The Wizard Knight, by Gene Wolfe

Compilation of two books originally published separately. The Knight and The Wizard, which rather seem to have sunk without trace since publication. I'm not wild about sword & sorcery as a sub-genre anyway, so couldn't get vastly interested in whatever it was Wolfe was trying to do to it. Then I put the book aside for a few days, and coming back to it realised that I really didn't care what happened after page 380. If I have missed something really special in the remaining 540 pages, feel free to notify me, with spoilers, in comments.
