    1. Shadows of the New Sun, edited by Peter Wright, is a collection of interviews with and essays by Gene Wolfe that touch on the science-fiction legend's approach to writing. The interviews are drawn from the 1970s through the early millennium, originally published in science-fiction periodicals and carried out by a range of interviewees. Most deal with Wolfe's first masterpiece The Fifth Head of Cerberus and his acclaimed tetrology "The Book of the New Sun", but plenty of attention is given to his [...]

    4. I can't help but think of this book, & all of Wright's work on Gene Wolfe, with the short hand of "Peter & the Wolfe." Much more grounded than Borski's literary critique, Wright relies more on interviews for his scholarship. A must have for any would-be Wolfe scholar! --MK
