So I rarely post anything here that isn’t Gene Wolfe related but I thought it wouldn’t hurt to post a shameless little plug for a fledgling press that I’ve recently had a piece of flash fiction published in. If you’re into supporting the smaller magazines out there that promote new writers then it’s a worthy purchase. Almost a hundred pages of nothing but flash fiction and poetry.
It’s called Donut Factory Press and it’s available on Amazon. They are also looking for submissions for their summer issue and you can check out their website if you’re interested in submitting your own work. Thanks for checking it out!
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.”
This month’s issue of Locus Magazine is sporting Gene Wolfe on the cover. I haven’t read it yet but his interview is called “Engineering The Future” so my guess is that it’s about science fiction technology becoming reality.
This years April edition of Fantasy & Science Fiction will sport a “Special Gene Wolfe Section” which will contain the following stories and a articles:
- How to Read Gene Wolfe -4- Neil Gaiman
- Memorare -6- Gene Wolfe
- The Wolf in the Labyrinth -82- Michael Swanwick
- Gene Wolfe: The Man And His Work -86- Michael Andrei-Driussi
All I can say is that I’m looking forward to it!
