Updates, we've got updates


I've made some updates to my page of Wolfe books available through amazon.com (over to the right). At the World Horror convention was released A Walking Tour of the Shambles, a guidebook cowritten with Neil Gaiman giveing a twisted fantasy overlay to a famous Chicago neighborhood.

In February Latro in the Mist will be released. This isn't given much description but my working assumption is that this is a collection of the already published Soldier books.

Still no information on the release date for Knight. I'm guessing it will be in 2003.

I've also updated a few missing links around the site and directed many of my Amazon links to the paperback version of the books where possible. And I'd like to say thank you to those who have bought books through my links. Its not very much money (and less than when the Short Sun books were hot) but its nice to get such tangible support.

An excerpt of Wolfe's forthcoming Novel Knight is available on the web as a preview of the fall issue (39) of Conjunctions.

[update] The link has been repaired. The excerpt published in Conjunctions 39 is much longer than the web preview. There's also alot of great stuff in Conjunctions from Gaiman, O'Leary, Straub, Clute, Crowley, Mieville, and more.

We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard, defining edges. When soldiers take their oath they are given a coin, an asimi stamped with the profile of the Autarch. Their acceptance of that coin is their acceptance of the special duties and burdens of military life--they are soldiers from that moment, though they may know nothing of the management of arms. I did not know that then, but it is a profound mistake to believe that we must know of such things to be influenced by them, and in fact to believe so is to believe in the most debased and superstitious kind of magic. The would-be sorcerer alone has faith in the efficacy of pure knowledge; rational people know that things act of themselves or not at all.
The Shadow of the Torturer, Gene Wolfe.
