Home Fires web comic & Wolfe Chapbooks

Came across a fantastic web comic on Comic Crits today about the experience of reading Home Fires by Gene Wolfe. The creator, John, does a great job of capturing the play on genre in Wolfe's book, and his comic certainly reflects my own thoughts on the novel.

Also, Lawrence Person just blogged about Wolfe's chapbooks, posting scanned title pages of At the Point of Capricorn (1983), The Boy Who Hooked the Sun (1985), The Arimaspian Legacy (1988), and Slow Children at Play (1989). As a fellow collector of Wolfe's work (albeit with a smaller collection than Person, no doubt), I know how rare and valuable these limited-edition chapbooks are. I'm so jealous!
