by Gene Wolfe
In these stories we can find all of Wolfe's distinctive narrators: those who are lame, those of ambiguous identity, those who are clever and ruthless, and those who are dead but don't know it. A Cabin on the Coast, Suzanne Delage, and Detective of Dreams stand out as some of the best stories in this collection; a number of other are entertaining. However, in general, Wolfe's longer work is where he really shines.
