Love Gene Wolfe! This short little collection is hard to find but a must-have for the Wolfe completist. Most of its contents can be found in other collections. The essay is interesting but my favorite story in the collection is "The Marvelous Brass Chessplaying Automaton".

Very hard to find book, I ended up ordering it from the US to Sweden for 30 dollars, because the teo I found for sale in Europe were over 500 pounds.

Very good book though, as mentioned in the other reviews, the essay on the books in the book of the new sun was interresting, and also the map over severians world.
Essay was particularly interesting.
