Title for new Wolfe novel; uncollected short story list updated

Just a quick post to note a couple of things. In a recent interview with Stephen C. Ormsby, Gene Wolfe wrote that he's finished The Land Across (presumably to be published next year) and is now working on another novel titled A Borrowed Man. No word yet what it's about, but the title at least sounds interesting! Wolfe briefly discussed the idea behind The Land Across with C.S.E. Cooney a 2010 interview.

Also, I just updated my list of Gene Wolfe's uncollected short stories (also on Google Docs) to include a few more stories from recent years. One of which,"Planetarium in Orbit," has only been published in a "Chicago in 2012 Worldcon Bid" booklet released at Anticipation (the 67th Worldcon) in August 2009. Does anyone have this? I'd be interested to know what it's about. Given Wolfe has had 29 short stories published since 2004, I wonder if we're due for another collection some time soon?
