Wolfe’s tetralogy The Book of the New Sun was the most acclaimed science fiction work of the 1980s. In 1990, he delivered his second collection of short fiction to universal acclaim. With over 30 stories in a variety of genres—SF, fantasy, horror, mainstream—many of them offering variations on themes and situations found in folklore and fairy tales, and including two stories, "The Cat" and "The Map," which are set in the universe of his New Sun novels. Wolfe's deconstructions/reconstructions are provocative, multilayered, and resonant.
