Gene Wolfe Mentioned On Episode Of Fringe

It was quick, but it was there, and it paid a moment of homage to one of SF&F’s greatest writers. Episode 16 in season 4 of Fringe named dropped Gene Wolfe as well as his book Litany of The Long Sun.  I don’t actually watch the show, but I made sure to catch most of this episode just to see it for myself.

Science Fiction Is A German Shepherd

A good pal of mine pointed me to a great Gene Wolfe interview done by Josh Wimmer for io9.com.  Gene talks about his new book "Home Fires" and the magic behind writing "near future" science fiction stories.  I have to say it's one of the best interviews I've seen with Wolfe and really has me excited about reading his new book.
