In April or May, Dreamhaven Books is releasing a chapbook of two new Wolfe stories, titled Strange Birds and illustrated by Lisa Snellings. The stories are "On a Vacant Face a Bruise" and "Sob in the Silence"; both look to be dark fantasy.I can't find any mention of this on the Dreamhaven books site yet, but there you go.

Latro is is one respect the opposite of Severian. Rather than remembering everything with perfect recall, Latro forgets everything that happens to him each day.
Thanks to the reader that alerted me to this.
And thanks in advance to those who pre-order it through my Amazon links.
