Patron Poll! The Gene Wolfe Literary Podcast, Part 2.



The time has come to choose which stories Glenn and Brandon will cover between The Fifth Head of Cerberus and Peace. Wolfe published twenty-four stories during this time, many of them deservedly beloved by fans, including the novella Forlesen and the story "The Hero as Werwolf," the Christmas classic "La Befana," and the sequel to "The Island of Doctor Death and Other Stories," "The Death of Dr. Island."

Brandon and Glenn will cover twelve of these stories, chosen by Patreon patrons at the Archon level or higher. Voting will be open between December 14 and December 20, 2018. If you aren't already a patron, becoming one is easy and comes with all sorts of great rewards. Check it out at www.patreon.com/ClaytempleMedia.

We're so grateful for the support of our patrons, and we're eager (and nervous) to see which stories you select in this poll that is crowded with some of Wolfe's best.
