Praise for Gene Wolfe"Wolfe is our Melville."--Ursula K. Le Guin "If any writer from within genre fiction ever merited the designation Great Author, it is surely Wolfe . . . [who] reads like Dickens, Proust, Kipling, Chesterton, Borges, and Nabokov rolled into one."--The Washington Post Book World "One of the literary giants of science fiction."--The Denver Post "Gene Wolfe is as good a writer as there is today...I feel a little bit like a musical contemporary attempting to tell people what's good about Mozart."--The Chicago Sun-Times "Wolfe is sf's greatest novelist, and overall one of America's finest."--The Washington Post Book World "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 "Quite possibly the most important writer in the sf field."--The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction
