I just finished the first volume in Gene Wolfe's The Book of the New Sun. For those not familiar with the book, Neil Gaiman has called this "The best SF novel of the last century." Even though I still have a ways to go before I finish the entire novel, so far I have to totally agree with Neil. I highly recommend people grab a copy of the novel and start reading.
BTW, because I have a lot of personal writing and reading to finish, I won't be blogging that much during the next month. I suggest blaming the silence of the blogs around here on Gene!
