A Critics in Wolfe's Clothing

Gary Wolfe's collection of reviews, Soundings, has just been published
by Beccon press in the UK. Although John Clute is probably the best
known genre critic, Wolfe is definitely worth a read. There is a
refreshing honesty to this collection. It has not been collected to
justify a position and altered (much if at all - I'm still reading the
book) to fit a new world view.

Wolfe, for those who may not know who he is, is a reviewer for Locus
magazine as well as being a professor at Roosevelt University. Soundings
is not a dry book, rather it is a lively trip through some of the best
and most interesting novels published between 1992 and 1996.
