Summary (From the publisher):

"Tonight you and I, with billions of others, are sitting around the fire we call 'the sun', telling stories; and from time to time it has been my turn to entertain." - Gene Wolfe.

In these stories, Gene Wolfe more than fulfils his wish to entertain. He will make you think, laugh and feel sad; but above all, he will give you enjoyment, the most important task for a writer to perform. The stories range widely, through Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror - two are set in the universe of Wolfe's bestselling Book of the New Sun novels. Once again, Gene Wolfe proves himself a master of fiction.
