The Wizard Knight by Gene Wolfe

This was my second read of this pair of books. They are very good.

Wolfe has here a fantasy story packed with cliches from famous stories about knights, and yet his writing is so good that you hardly notice they are cliches.

The first read of the story, I figured it was about honour. However, the second time it seems to be all about being a man. Honour is a part of that, but that's all.

One of the top fantasy stories ever.
