Posterous is shutting its doors which means Hoof&Hide must once again move. I’ll be taking the blog to tumblr from this post on. Currently you can reach the new blog at:
Very shortly I’ll be moving the website domain over there as well. Hopefully it’ll prove to be a worthy and stable home for my little fan site. Thanks!

In a post today on io9.com by Charlie Jane Anders, Gene Wolfe’s “The Book of The New Sun”, is listed along with nine other book series as being so addictive you don’t want it to end. Couldn’t agree more.

Locus Magazine online polled it’s readers to find out what they thought was the best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the 20th and 21st century. The most notable list for Wolfe was “The Fifth Head of Cerberus” (one of my personal favorites) placing 6th from the top for best novella of the 20th Century. The Book of the New Sun made both lists for 20th Century Science Fiction and 20th Century Fantasy, though not in the top ten. He also made the 20th Century short story list with “The Island of Doctor Death.”

Tor.com has a nice write up about the growing number of Gene Wolfe titles now available as eBooks. You can give those hard copies a rest, and load one of these up on your Nook or Kindle instead. My hopes are to see the complete Long Sun series available soon.

Perhaps for many of us the title of Master was one we always felt Gene deserved, award or not, but it’s nice when these things become official. I’m a bit off on reporting this, due to some time away from the webs last week (a special thank you to walking pneumonia for keeping me secluded from the rest of the world), but I still wanted to post it here.
The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America have named Gene Wolfe the 2012 Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master. There are a bunch of wonderful quotes and by Wolfe and others on the the SFWA website. If you’ve missed it for some reason, be sure to read through it. It’s definitely a most fitting award for Gene’s accomplishments as a writer.
