As John Barach says, the anthology *Other Earths*, edted by yours truly and Jay Lake, due out on April 9 as a mass market paperback from DAW Books, contains a new story by Gene Wolfe: "Donovan Sent Us". OE is an alternate-history antho, and Gene's contribution is splendidly sinister. Nazi America sends a spy to German-occupied Britain, and said spy must act German--or perhaps *become German*...

Other rather Wolfean tales in the book are by Paul Park and Theodora Goss. Lucius Shepard fans should note his original novella, "Dog-Eared Paperback of My Life".
