One Final Book

Looks like Gene Wolfe left us with his sequel to “A Borrowed Man”, after all. Editor-in-chief over at Tor tweeted this out today and it’s pretty exciting news.

He goes on to say the title will be “Interlibrary Loan.” It’s a good feeling knowing we have one last gift from Wolfe left to anticipate. Posts Excerpt of “The Land Across” Posts Excerpt of “The Land Across”

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.

Wolfe’s Work Available as eBooks has a nice write up about the growing number of Gene Wolfe titles now available as eBooks.  You can give those hard copies a rest, and load one of these up on your Nook or Kindle instead.  My hopes are to see the complete Long Sun series available soon.
