Oh I did not like this. Plotless, meandering, boring. I truly do not understand why people hype this book. UGH

UGH, this was not for me. I only read this as it was part of the omnibus and I wasn't aware of reading two separate books.

Oh, Gene. I was so excited when I read the dustjacket. Pulp 1930s Lovecraftian noir fiction by Gene Wolfe? I was salivating. But what's here does not deliver the goods -- not even slightly.

What this really looks like is two novellas mashed together with mostly the same characters, and only one of them is any good. The first two-thirds of the book reads like a [b:Raymond Chandler|2052|The Big Sleep|Raymond Chandler|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41AGA624Z5L._SL75_.jpg|1222673] detective-noir piece. It's almost all dialogue, and while the suspense is great and the characters interesting, it's like reading a sketch of a novel. So little information about anything is there that one keeps reading to learn something -- anything -- that will put the dialogue in some kind of context.

The last third of the book we suddenly get the Lovecraftian elements we've been waiting for, but only as stage props. Only two or three times does Wolfe manage a passage that's Lovecraftian in language or effect. That said, we also find out a lot more about what's going on, which makes this part of the book far more interesting.

But wait. The conflict from the first two-thirds of the book is rendered null and void by fiat in part two. So Wolfe has to concoct an entirely new conflict -- warmed-over HPL -- that ultimately fails to deliver the goods.

I wanted to like it, I really did. But if you truly love Gene Wolfe, go read "Shadow of the Torturer" again. You'll be far, far happier.

A powerfully weird book, and a great example of Wolfe's style.

Most other sci-fi would explicitly show off the setting and landscape very early on, and make the internal conflicts clear.

Not so with Wolfe; he throws you in to the memoirs of someone starting as a small boy, and at first you're not sure where you are... it feels like a European French city or colony, but it becomes clear that we're on another planet (that has been colonized) and that all kinds of changes are a regular part of this world. Sentient computers, cloning, genetic manipulation, and a mystery or myth surrounding the people who may or may not have lived on the planet before earthlings came along.

That's just the first of three novellas inside this book, and there's a LOT I'm not covering there.

I won't synopsize the other two, because uncovering those stories and figuring them out is part of the appeal with this book. It's also not easy to synopsize! It ends definitively, but without a concise moral or lesson, requiring you to process what you've read and how it impacts you.

Regarding the setting and it's connection to colonization: reading this in 2022 in Canada, where we are grappling with reconciliation and transforming settler culture to engage ethically with indigenous culture, there is a lot to chew on here... the absorption of one culture by another, but the possible twists within that, are useful questions today.

Perhaps the need to uncover it's details, the shifting perspectives of narrators, and it's less-obvious setting are why this book isn't as famous as his New Urth series, but it's worth your time and effort!
