Gene Wolfe News and Rumors Logged by Paul Duggan
Thursday, March 27, 2008Centipede Press, publisher of high-end, pricey illustrated limited editions of famous SF and Horror works (along with artbooks), is publishing a high-end, pricey ($225) limited (300 copies) edition of Shadow of the Torturer. Their single image web page about the book is viewable, and they appear to be taking orders.
Cloth - Printed on 100# Mohawk Superfine. Bound in suedel luxe cloth, with seven full color illustrations and a map with a cloth covered slipcase.They state it will have seven illustrations by Alexander Preuss, whose website I've linked to previously. You can see some new New Sun related illustrations by the artist currently, including a map of sorts. It looks like the artists site is a fair preview of the illustrations to be included in the limited edition.
The Centipede Press Site image says that the full set of all four books will be available in "Spring of 2008", but that the Shadow of the Torturer would be available in "August". I can only assume, since the Millipede Press site that is actually taking the orders (millipede and centipede are the same company) says that only Shadow is available, that we may not be getting the full set of all the books for a while longer.

Tuesday, March 18, 2008Amazon lists Wolfe's forthcoming Lovecraftian novel An Evil Guest as forthcoming in September. You can pre-order the book by clicking on the link, which takes you to Amazon.com.
Neil Gaiman commented on this earlier. Nick Gevers, who is reading an advanced copy says of its style:
It's third person, near-future, which squares with "Memorare", and shapeshifters appear to be involved.
