>From Tor's Spring 2009 catalog:

"From a literary perspective, this will certainly be the best
collection of the year in science fiction and fantasy. Gene
Wolfe, of whom the Washington Post said, "Of all SF writers
currently active none is held in higher esteem," has selected
the short fiction he considers his finest into one volume.
There are many award winners and many that have been selected
for various Year's Best anthologies among the thirty-one stories,
which include:"Petting Zoo," "The Tree Is My Hat," "The Island
of Dr. Death and Other Stories," "The Hero as Werewolf," "Seven
American Nights," "The Fifth Head of Cerberus," "The Detective
of Dreams," and "A Cabin on the Coast."
Gene Wolfe has produced possibly the finest and most significant
body of short fiction in the SF and fantasy field in the last
fifty years, and is certainly among the greatest living writers to
emerge from the genres.
This is the first retrospective collection of his entire career.
It is for the ages."
