Hello Jonathan Laidlow.

Re: book(s) listed in Joan Gordon's GENE WOLFE; pertaining to THE
BOOK OF THE NEW SUN; specifically (?) Gene Wolfe writing about how he
wrote TBOTNS (?).

The book in question would be THE CASTLE OF THE OTTER: A BOOK ABOUT
THE BOOK OF THE NEW SUN (1982).  It has been reprinted by Tor in an
omnibus edition with GENE WOLFE'S BOOK OF DAYS (1981) as CASTLE OF
DAYS (1992).

The only other book about TBOTNS (that I'm aware of) is LEXICON
URTHUS (1994), but it is not listed in Joan Gordon's GENE WOLFE
(1986), nor does it have articles by Wolfe about the writing of

Otherwise, the book(s) listed in Joan Gordon's GW in the chapter
about TBOTNS: only THE BIBLE (the other citations are reviews of
TBOTNS, an interview with Gene Wolfe, and an article for writers by
Gene Wolfe).

I hope this helps.
