PS Publishing has something special due out later this year for the serious Gene Wolfe collector. A collection of thrity-two of Wolfe’s best short stories all in one volume entitled, “The Very Best of Gene Wolfe.” It includes a rare piece called, “Christmas Inn” and a forward by Kim Stanley Robinson.
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.
I started working on a flickr.com gallery of various covers from books written by and about Gene Wolfe. So far I have around 51 images including a selection from other countries and in multiple languages. As of now it’s still in a sort of “beta” format but it does work and is fun to browse. Please feel free to email any new book covers, links to book covers or any suggestions or comments you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you have a flickr account I’d be happy to add you as a contact to the Hoof&Hide gallery. You can view the gallery by clicking on the book image on the side bar of this blog or by visiting http://www.flickr.com/photos/hoofandhide.
