Katie Anyone else out there read much Gene Wolfe? I'm in the middle of the Book of the Short Sun, and I'll admit that I'm willing to give Wolfe the title of Master of the Unreliable Narrator...

A fantastic and romantic story

Steve Libbey When pressed to name my favorite writer, Gene Wolfe always comes to mind. One of the aspects of his writing that I appreciate most is exactly that opacity that Sherri mentions (and must also be why I like Pynchon so much too).

Stick to it, Sherri. Wolfe is like literary weightlifting: great rewards for your efforts. When you're done, it's hard to go back to lightweight authors.

Molly If you don't immediately love Gene Wolfe, I might say don't bother. His books are mostly very similar and if you require sense, reliability, and knowing what is going on, even, sometimes, you won't like them.

Mr. Wolfe is rich brainfood which whispers of life as art.
