I have only read a small handful of Gene Wolfe short stories but I’ve really enjoyed those that I have read. My first experience with him was reading The Knight and The Wizard and I was just blown away with his abilities. Definitely consider myself a fan even though I have yet to read the stories that comprise The Book of the New Sun.

Carl,

I have never read The Knight and The Wizard (although it is on my list) but I have enjoyed everything else I have read by Gene Wolfe.

The Book of The New Sun is my all time favorite SF series – in fact I consider it one of the best stories in *any* genre. Don’t just take my word for it, check out what Jason Sanford has to say about it.

Thanks for the link, I’ll check it out. I have had a few people give me a hard time about not reading that series yet. I will certainly get to it and should really make it a priority.
