Product Overview

Over the years sf and fantasy writer Gene Wolfe has proven himself to be adept at all lengths of fiction.

Now in "THE LONG AND THE SHORT OF IT," once again literary detective Robert Borski brings his critical eye and acumen to the wide array of Wolfe''s work, from short stories to novellas to mega-book series.

Along the way he''ll reveal to you the hidden alchemical structure of PEACE, why he thinks Latro and several others may be werewolves, what has happened to the missing twenty-four hours in ''Seven American Nights," what Biblical story is retold in the pulpish ''Tracking Song," who might or might not be an abo in "THE FIFTH HEAD OF CERBERUS," and how to navigate your way through dozens of other lupine mazes-all before concluding with an extended examination of Wolfe''s dazzling, if often opaque, "BOOK OF THE SHORT SUN."
