Yeah, it really is -- but then I actually like LS better than SS. On
the other hand, there hasn't been a Gene Wolfe book I didn't like (and
actually TWK is my personal favorite, but not the one I would think
"best"). The only one I have never been tempted to reread is OPERATION
ARES, but not because I didn't like it -- my paperback copy is falling
apart and it's very hard to find.
