Hi everyone!

Today marks a momentous occasion: Loki and I have talked about a book for so long that we can't talk about it anymore!

We released our final episode on The Sorcerer's House today, and we're now moving on to a series of short stories by the same author (Gene Wolfe): Underhill, The Hero as Werwolf, and Forlesen. The first one is a Free online short story. The last two can be found in The Best of Gene Wolfe, which is easily available.

If you're interested at all in the podcast, but didn't want to have to read a whole book, these next few weeks are a great opportunity; you can read a short story in one sitting and find out whether or not you like our style in one episode.

Thanks, and let us know if you have questions.

Oh man, I completely missed that (late Sorcerer's House spoiler) Old Nick is Mr. Black. I somehow just didn't make the connection and thought that Black showed up because Bax used a spell. In my defense, I sped through the last 1/4 of the book and was up really late the night I finished it. I thought I was really on top of stuff, but that's a big one.

I'm on the lookout for a copy of The Best of Gene Wolfe.

I did it!

I read the three short stories, and I also picked up the two volumes of The Book of the New Sun, which I started this morning.

Surprise! You needed to read FOUR short stories.

The guestcast we did with British Pop-culture show "You Know What I Like" went up yesterday. We cover Wolfe in general, some SH stuff, and go through "The Toy Theater."

Just when I think I'm done, you guys pull me back in!

I guess I could fit in one more short story.

Make sure you try out Arcadia when we move on to that one, too. It's not Wolfe, but it's still amazing!

^Yeah, it's on my list.

A while ago you guys mentioned an artist who was posting Book of the New Sun art on Twitter. At the time I checked it out, but had no idea what it was about. Now I'm halfway through the Claw of the Conciliator and I wanted to look him up again, but I have no idea what his name was or what episode you mentioned him in. Do you remember who it was?
