To say that Roosevelt University Professor Gary Wolfe is well read in the Science Fiction and Fantasy literary world is an understatement. Wolfe has been a reviewer of Sci Fi for Locus magazine for more than 18 years, discussing hundreds upon hundreds of books in the genre. In April 2010, Bearings: Reviews 1997-2001 will be published, which brings together Wolfe’s always insightful, and frequently funny, critiques of almost 200 books reviewed during those years. Wolfe’s first volume in this series, Soundings: Reviews 1992-1996, came out in 2005, and won the British Science Fiction Association Award for best Non-Fiction Book in 2006. Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman comic series, American Gods, and Coraline, among other notable works, said “Gary Wolfe is one of speculative fiction’s smartest observers and wisest critics. He’s funny and trenchant, always acute and always perceptive. We are fortunate to have him.” Wolfe’s third collection, to be called Sightings, is scheduled for publication in 2011.
