Golden City Far



  • 2005 Locus Award

Wolfe's comments from the Introduction to Starwater Strains

"Golden City Far closes this book you're holding, as it does Al Sarrantonio's Flights. It's about dreams, high school, and finding love, which is as good a recipe for a story as I've ever found."


A high-school-student has recurring dreams of heroic fantasy that begin to spill over into real life.


  • There seem to be parallels between this story and the later Knight and Wizard books.
  • Sources of quotes
  • Meanings of names
  • References to other works
  • Theories about what happens under the surface, what the narrator isn't telling us, who the narrator is and when and why s/he is telling the story, what the whole thing "means," etc.
    If there are multiple or competing theories, each one should be given a name with a three-bang (!!!) header; if the page begins to get out-of-hand from the size of these, as could happen in a few cases, they should be shuffled off to their own page(s).
  • Etc.
