"I read it immediately, of course, as I have all of Gene Wolfe's other books. What can one say? The man is too clever by half, and ought to be obliged to donate some of his excess brain cells to charity (I mean, think of all the really stupid authors out there who could benefit!)--but he is so much "fun." He doesn't just do his homework on the ancient world, he plays hopscotch with it. The narrative--vivid, dramatic, and irremediably fragmented--is like ancient history itself, full of unanswered questions." -Gillian Bradshaw on "Soldier of Sidon" "Gene Wolfe is the smartest, subtlest, most dangerous writer alive today, in genre or out of it. If you don't read this book you'll have missed out on something important and wonderful and all the cool people will laugh at you."--Neil Gaiman on "The Knight" "Most writers of fantasy or science fiction know how to tell rattling good stories. But Gene Wolfe not only entertains, he invests his work with a complexity and trickiness that place him among the most important writers of our time." --"The ""Washington"" Post" "Wolfe's words wash over the reader with transparent grace and charming playfulness as he spins his profoundly imaginative, metaphysically complex, yet ever-entertaining tale with astonishing naturalness This is fantasy at its best: revelatory and inspirational."--"Publishers Weekly" (Starred Review) on "The Wizard" "A marvelously fluent, evocative historical, and first of a series, from the well-known author. . . . Glowing, fascinating, intricate work, full of gods and ghosts and magical metamorphoses, set forth in a modern prose that agreeably captures the rhythm and spirit of the period." -"Kirkus Reviews" [starred review] on "Soldier of the Mist""Review:
"The narrative--vivid, dramatic, and irremediably fragmented--is like ancient history itself, full of unanswered questions."
