Check out the foreword for Shadows of the New Sun, an anthology honoring Gene Wolfe, featuring short stories from Neil Gaiman, David Brin, Nancy Kress, and Wolfe himself! It will hit shelves on August 27—check out the Table of Contents after the excerpt!:
Perhaps no living author of imaginative fiction has earned the awards, accolades, respect, and literary reputation of Gene Wolfe. His prose has been called subtle and brilliant, inspiring not just lovers of fantasy and science fiction, but readers of every stripe, transcending genre and defying preconceptions.
In this volume, a select group of Wolfe’s fellow authors pay tribute to the award-winning creator of The Book of the New Sun, The Fifth Head of Cerberus, Soldier of the Mist, The Wizard Knight and many others, with entirely new stories written specifically to honor the writer hailed by The Washington Post as “one of America’s finest.”
