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.

Memory Error: New Story coming out in July's Golden Visions (Print)

Memory Error will come out in the July print edition of Golden Visions. I just signed the contract. It's a story about a future where people live so long they can't remember everything. So a wise medical company comes up with a solution. And a wiser neurological researcher helps them work out the kinks. With all that wisdom, what could go wrong?

The site is for the online edition- with information on how to obtain print (and soon) pdf versions.

The April online edition - came out. Print issues for April should be ready by the end of next week.
