Gene Wolfe is my favourite author. There are many that compete for this spot, among them (in no particular order) Harlan Ellison, Philip K. Dick, Roger Zelazny, Ursula K. LeGuin, and Frank Herbert, just to name a few; but the writing and the story-telling of none of them captures my fascination and imagination in the way that Gene Wolfe does.
This page is rather sparse at the moment. I plan to add more detail, opinions, titles of my favourite stories, etc. as I find the time.
The ``Sun'' Books
The ``New Sun'', ``Long Sun'', and ``Short Sun'' are all linked in some way or other. Although set in a future so distant that our own time has receded out of all memory, this future ``Urth'' is also bent with age and decay, and infused with language and symbolism that predate most of our own memories, but evoke a sense of familarity. Wolfe weaves his stories with such care and love that the depth, density, and unforgettable imagery transports and forever leaves its mark upon us.
