Gene Wolfe follows his acclaimed all-fantasy short story collection, Innocents Aboard, with a volume devoted primarily to his science fiction. The twenty-five stories here amply demonstrate his range, excellence, and mastery of the form. A few tantalizing samples:
Viewpoint takes on the unreality of so-called reality TV and imagines such a show done truly for real, with real guns. Empires of Foliage and Flower is in the classic Book of the New Sun series. Golden City Far. is about dreams, high school, and finding love, which Wolfe says is about as good a recipe for a story as I've ever found. You're sure to agree.
