Wolfe the Legend Wins 20007 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel

wolfe_geneBorn in 1931, the legendary Gene Wolfe is still going strong, adding yet another World Fantasy Novel Award to his collection, this time for, Soldier of Sidon. A prolific short story writer as well as a novelist, he has won the Nebula Award and now World Fantasy Award twice each, the Campbell Memorial Award, and the Locus Award four times. He has also been nominated for the Hugo Award on multiple occasions.

With a dedicated legion of fans Mr. Wolfe obviously enjoys his art. Soldier of Sidon, is the third in the In the soldier" series. The first two, Soldier of the Mist and Soldier of Areteare generally considered classics of contemporary fantasy. The first two were actually combined in Latro in the Mist for those who would like to find out what all the fuss is about.

To background it- Latro,was a Roman mercenary who was fighting in Greece when he received a head injury that deprived him of his short-term memory but gave him in return the ability to see and converse with the supernatural creatures, the gods and goddesses, who invisibly inhabit the classical landscape. Latro forgets everything when he sleeps. Writing down his experiences every day and reading his journal anew each morning gives him a poignantly tenuous hold on himself, but his story's hold on readers is powerful indeed.

In the latest our hero Latro now finds himself in Egypt, a land of singing girls, of spiteful and conniving deities. Without his memory, he is unsure of everything, except for his desire to be free of the curse that causes him to forget. Lets hope Mr. Wolfe lives to be a hundred and five.

He had to beat off some pretty strong contenders this time around. The Privilege of the Sword by Ellen Kushner, The Lies of Locke Lamora Scott Lynch and The Orphan's Tales Vol. I in the Night Garden: by Catherynne M. Valent all had their supporters. Kevin Parker
