I've a confession to make. I've never read anything that Gene Wolfe has written until opening his latest, The Best of Gene Wolfe: A Definitive Retrospective Of His Finest Short Fiction. I've got a lot of catching up to do. This guy can write, and this collection of over thirty of his short stories is wonderful. From official release/information:
Product Description: From a literary perspective, this will certainly be the best collection of the year in science fiction and fantasy. 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 finest into one volume.
