A nice chunk of the story if I do say so myself. Looks to be even more than what I listened to Gene read when I attended MadCon nearly three years ago. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can remember and what he might have changed. It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for this one to finally arrive and I can’t wait to get my hands on it at the end of November!
UPDATE: Cory Doctorow posts about the excerpt here.
Lawrence Person has written a good review of Gene Wolfe’s upcoming novel “Home Fires.” He gives you a basic idea of plot and characters without giving anything important away. It’s a good overview if you want to know what you’re getting yourself into before you pick up the book. “Home Fires” is due out January 18, 2011. Thanks Lawrence!
Gene Wolfe’s “An Evil Guest” is a finalist for a 2009 Locus Award under the Fantasy Novel category. Each category contains five finalists and the winners will be announced on June 26-27 at the Science Fiction Awards Weekend in Seattle Washington.
