Gene Wolfe News and Rumors Logged by Paul Duggan
Saturday, January 30, 2010Let me take the time to again thank those of you who buy Wolfe books through the links I place to Amazon. It seems though, that Amazon and MacMillan have a dispute over the price of Kindle books see here which has led to Amazon no longer selling ANY books by any MacMillan publisher.
I'm not sure: I think I still make a few pennies when Amazon sells a book through the 'sellers' (who still are operating on Amazon) but I'm not sure if this is worthwhile anymore. We'll see if this gets resolved quickly.

Tuesday, January 19, 2010Alex Carnevale, a writer for io9.com, posts his countdown of the top 100 SF/F books of all time.
Coming in at #1 is Book of the Long Sun.
Wolfe's imaginings are more real to me now than many actual events, managing to mercilessly strip ourselves of what we believe it is to be human until all that is left is our humanity.Wow!
Book of the New Sun is at number 8.
And more Wolfe elsewhere. Also lots of Vance, and lots of Heinlein.
