Locus Awards (2010)

"One of the literary giants of science fiction."
--"The Denver Post"

"Wolfe is a sophisticated stylist, and has more in common with writers such as Jorge Luis Borges than almost any science fiction writer both in terms of craft and themes."
" The Boston Globe"
""Gene Wolfe, of whom the "Washington Post" said, "Of all SF writers currently active none is held in higher esteem," has selected the short fiction he considers his best into one volume.

There are many award nominees and winners among the thirty-one stories here, and many that have been selected for various Year's Best anthologies over the last forty years, including "Petting Zoo," "The Tree Is My Hat," "The Island of Dr. Death and Other Stories," "The Hero as Werwolf," "Seven American Nights," "The Fifth Head of Cerberus," "The Detective of Dreams," and "A Cabin on the Coast." Gene Wolfe has produced possibly the finest and most significant body of short fiction in the SF and fantasy field in the last forty years, and is certainly among the great living writers to emerge from the genres. This is the first retrospective collection of his entire career. It is for the ages.

"Gene Wolfe is the smartest, subtlest, most dangerous writer alive today."
--Neil Gaiman"
