Gene Wolfe

Today, Love All Books wishes the happiest of birthdays to science fiction and fantasy author Gene Wolfe.

Gene Wolfe is the Nebula, World Fantasy, John W. Campbell Memorial, and Locus award winning author of many great books.

His Soldier of the Mist has long been one of my favorite books. It is the story of Latro, a Roman mercenary that—as the result of a head injury in battle in ancient Greece—forgets everything while he's sleeping, and how he copes with awakening with amnesia each day.

(Think 50 First Dates, just set in ancient times—oh, and not so funny!)

Wolfe is also the author of the extremely popular The Book of the New Sun series.
