The Washington Post did a small review on, “An Evil Guest.” Not the longest review I’ve seen but Edward Champion reviews about five different books at once in a Science Fiction and Fantasy Roundup and gives us a small taste of them all.
Here’s something really cool I saw on the Urth mailing list today. It’s a blog posting by a liturgical musician who is good friends with Gene Wolfe. He writes about Wolfe using some of his lyrics in “An Evil Guest.” It’s a really great read. You can read it here. On a side note this link just happens to be the 100th entry to the Hoof&Hide Magnolia group.
Oh yeah! Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day!
Looks like the cover to Gene Wolfe’s upcoming book, “An Evil Guest” has had it’s cover changed from this to this. I suppose the question at hand is if the “original” cover was ever meant to be the cover at all. Personally I like the style of the first cover a little better but the new cover is probably better for a good Lovecraftian story. Speaking of Lovecraft covers Mike Mignola did an excellent one for a new printing of a collection of short stories by H.P. Lovecraft. I’d like to Mignola do a cover for Gene Wolfe book some day.
