    Official Blatant but Honest Self Promotion Thread

    I've spent the last three years writing analyses of EVERYTHING Gene Wolfe has written. The first volume came out ... and it is primarily for Gene Wolfe fans, but is designed to aid readers who missed allusions and just didn't understand deeper thematic and structural things that Wolfe was doing. I believe objective closure is possible in almost every story, no matter how "postmodern" or "decentralized" meaning seems. The first volume is over 800 pages, and covers everything he wrote from 1951 to 1986. The second will be released next year. As of right now it only has an ebook release, but I am hopeful of a hardcover by the end of the year. Outside the urth mailing list, readers of Wolfe are a hard lot to market to ... so ... here are links, but you should have definitely read at least one novel or short story collection by Wolfe first before looking at my book. The qualifier here is that this is DEFINITELY not a book for everyone.   epub and non-us kindle http://www.castaliahouse.com/downloads/between-light-and-shadow/   amazon link   http://www.amazon.com/Between-Light-Shadow-Exploration-Fiction-ebook/dp/B011YTDGY2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1437493310&sr=8-1&keywords=marc+aramini   If you have never read Wolfe, some suggestions, as I really want to promote him as a household name as the final goal of my project: The Island of Doctor Death and other stories and other stories (short story collection) Endangered Species (short stories) The Best of Gene Wolfe (short stories)   Peace ("mainstream" novel ... at least, not SF) Fifth Head of Cerberus (SF novel) Book of the New Sun (SF series, Shadow and Claw v.1/Sword and Citadel v.2/Urth of the New Sun Coda)
