The essays range from Wolfe's second and third novels, the brilliant "Fifth Head of Cerberus" and Peace," by way of a number of short stories, to the monumental and monolithic "Book of the Short Sun." The last, longest essay, in particular is an attempt to decode "Short Sun." While I don't always agree with Borski's conclusions about some of the short stories, where I think he is too clever for his own good at times, on the novels and especially the Solar series he is spot-on.
I haven't read Borski's first collection of essays on the fiction of Gene Wolfe, "Solar Labyrinth," but on the strength of this one, I believe I will.
