7/10

The first thing that’s noticeable about This Census-Taker is its marketing. I’d imagine that author China Mieville had the following conversation with his publicist: “Say mate, I have this little novella lying around. 534 more words

Smilodon Tracks

I couldn’t help but smile at the recent discovery of these fossilized footprints of a saber-toothed cat. Made about 50,000 years ago they may perhaps be made again hundreds of thousands of years into the future under the glow of a dying sun.

Gene Wolfe for N00bs - An Interview with Marc Aramini

I haven’t read much of Gene Wolfe’s work, even though everybody tells me it’s fantastic. There are 25 novels and almost 10 short story collections, so deciding where one should start feels like a chore in itself (maybe we can christen it as the Moorcock Dilemma). 4,595 more words

Review of The Lost Pilgrim by Gene Wolfe

I found this a bit of a dry read. And yes, I had to finish it once I began. In some ways it was interesting.
