Gene Wolfe, of whom thenbsp;Washington Post said, "Of allnbsp;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 winnersnbsp;among the thirty-one stories here, and many that have been selected for various Year's Best anthologies over the last forty years,nbsp;including 8220;Petting Zoo,8221; 8220;The Tree Is My Hat,8221; 8220;The Island of Dr. Death and Other Stories,8221; 8220;The Hero as Werwolf,8221; 8220;Seven American Nights,8221; 8220;The Fifth Head of Cerberus,8221; 8220;The Detective of Dreams,8221; and 8220;A Cabin on the Coast.8221; Gene Wolfe has produced possibly the finest and most significant body of short fiction in the SF and fantasy field in the lastnbsp;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.
8220;Gene Wolfe is the smartest, subtlest, most dangerous writer alive today.8221;
