Gene Wolfe tribute anthology to be published in 2013

I just found out that a Gene Wolfe tribute anthology, tentatively titled Tales from the New Sun and edited by Jean Rabe, is due to be published by Tor in (US) Spring 2013. In July, Jack Dann, a contributor to the anthology, posted the below table of contents on his blog. It looks like the anthology will include two new Wolfe stories (or perhaps they're the book's introduction and afterword?) and some fascinating-sounding short fiction, including Neil Gaiman's "The Lunar Labyrinth." Nancy Kress's story, and probably others as well, will be set within worlds created by Wolfe. I'm looking forward to this one!

Gene Wolfe, "Frostfree"
Neil Gaiman, "A Lunar Labyrinth"
Joe Haldeman, "The Island of the Death Doctor"
Timothy Zahn, "A Touch of Rosemary"
Steven Savile, "Ashes"
David Drake, "Bedding"
Nancy Kress, "... And Other Stories"
Jack Dann, "The Island of Time"
Michael Swanwick, "The She-Wolf’s Hidden Grin"
Michael A. Stackpole, "Snowchild"
Mike Resnick and Barry Malzberg, "Tourist Trap"
Aaron Allston, "Epistoleros"
Todd McCaffrey, "Rhubarb and Beets"
Judi Rohrig, "Tunes From Limbo, But I Digress"
William C. Dietz, "In the Shadow of the Gate"
Marc Aramini, "Soldier of Mercy"
Jody Lynn Nye, "New Sun"
David Brin, "The Logs"
Gene Wolf, "Sea of Memory"


  1. My story is titled "Tunes from Limbo, But I Digress." Happy to have my story included.

  2. Ah! Thanks for the correction, Judi. I heard Jack Dann read his contribution at the World Fantasy Convention last year - really looking forward to the anthology!

    is this a genre media license or a literate author?
