Book review: An Evil Guest

An Evil Guest An Evil Guest by Gene Wolfe

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I would never have guessed Gene Wolfe would do a madcap Cthulhu caper, but he did. Fast, funny, and crazy. It has a 1920s feel but is set in a future where the laws of physics are found to be decidedly non-universal. The point of view character, an actress who romances some rather scary men, is way over her head, and is carried on a sea of mythos mischief.
Not one of Wolfe's deeper works, but great fun.
