Ultan’s Library, a resource website for the study Gene Wolfe, recently republished an essay by Michael Andre-Driussi, called The Death of Catherine the Weal and Other Stories. It was originally published in 1992 and was intended to be a sort of “overture” for the original Lexicon Urthus.
They also have begun constructing a new design for their site which so far looks great. It’s always awesome to see well put together sites like this one dedicated to the work of Gene Wolfe. I’ll be visiting often.
Looks like March of 2009 will see the release of a new book called “The Best of Gene Wolfe: A Definitive Retrospective of His Finest Short Fiction.” It’s 544 pages and is being published by Tor Books. I’m interested to see what all they include within it’s pages.
Jeremy L. C. Jones interviews Gene Wolfe on Clarksworld Magazine’s website. He talks a lot about writing. Very good read.
Thanks to the god’s of retail blessing me with the opportunity to work a tax free weekend holiday I’m a tad late in posting this (where’s a sacred window when you need one, right?). August 1st saw the release of the second edition of Sirius Fiction’s Lexicon Urthus.
Judging by the price the original Lexicon sells for used the hard cover is certainly worth picking up over the paperback if you’re not strapped for cash.
In a post from the Lexicon Urthus Google Group Michael Andre-Driussi announces that the second edition of Sirius Fiction‘s Lexicon Urthus will go on sale August 1st of this year. Its a good year for Wolfe books with his new one out in September and the recent publication of Memorare in hard back. I’ve been waiting for the republishing of the Lexicon for some time now since the out of print one is going for around $300 for a good used copy.
