Product Description
<DIV><DIV>Lovecraft mets Blade Runner. This is a stand-alone supernatural horror novel with a 30s noir atmosphere. Gene Wolfe can write in whatever genre he wants--and always with superb style and profound depth. Now following his World Fantasy Award winner, <I>Soldier of Sidon</I>, and his stunning <I>Pirate Freedom</I>, Wolfe turns to the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft and the weird science tale of supernatural horror.<BR><BR>Set a hundred years in the future, <I>An Evil Guest</I> is a story of an actress who becomes the lover of both a mysterious sorcerer and private detective, and an even more mysterious and powerful rich man, who has been to the human colony on an alien planet and learned strange things there. Her loyalties are divided--perhaps she loves them both. The detective helps her to release her inner beauty and become a star overnight. And the rich man is the benefactor of a play she stars in. But something is very wrong. Money can be an evil guest, but there are other evils. As Lovecraft said, "That is not dead which can eternal lie."</DIV></DIV>
