Best sci-fi/fantasy books ever written. This bloke is BETTER than even pTerry (and that is saying a deal) It is complex, scary stuff with layers upon layers of meaning, humour, plot and sub-plot. Wolfe is a master. Try the "Books of the New Sun" as possibly the most acessible series (multi award-winning) and move on to the mysteries of the "Long Sun" and "Latro" series. These are not easy reads but they will reward you a thousand times over with the subtle complexities of the text. PLEASE try Gene Wolfe.
