Here are the stunningly different tales that established Wolfe as one of the leading writers of the Seventies New Wave: "The Fifth Head of Cerberus", set on a colony planet whose macabre social system may hide a horrifying truth about the very nature of the human species; "The Island of Doctor Death and Other Stories", in which a young boy's imagination darkly transforms his troubles life in a broken household; "The Hero as Werewolf", an astonishing gothic enquiry into the roots of what it is to be human; "Seven American Nights", a baroque masterpiece of altered perception and authorial misdirection set in a ruined America; and many more. And then there are Wolfe's exquisitely crafted meditations on faith and the life of the spirit: the famously revelatory "The Detective of Dreams", the bewitching "La Befana", the wondrous "The Eyeflash Miracles", the elusive "The God and His Man", which casts a fascinating sidelight on The Book of the New Sun.
