You've said, in the past, that you intend to cover about half of Wolfe's stories in between his novels. And I think that, so far, that has been a good plan. But the short stories Wolfe wrote in the Seventies — or, say, from 1973 to 1980 or so — are, in my view, his very best. (Or maybe I should just say: he was operating at a consistently high level then.) Before and after, I think half is fine. But if you skip half the stories in that era, you're inevitably going to miss some of his best works. So you might want to loosen the constraints in that section, and do a few more. Or, if you can't stand waiting to get to the Book/Sun books another moment, at least hold open the possibility of going back to cover some of the skipped ones later.
Hello, first time poster here. I have been following the podcast cover Fifth Head of Cerberus at work and in Episode 44, the Wrap Up, Brandon and Glenn briefly talk about Neal Stephenson's Anathem and how its use of leaves as paper could be a nod to Fifth Head. Glenn also says there are several Book of the New Sun references in Anathem. I'm a big fan of Anathem and read the Book of New Sun last year, but I'm at a loss of spotting the references. Can anyone help me out, or is this discussed in another episode?
