    The author's name is Gene Wolfe, not Steven King.

    He or she means that Wolfe's name is spelled incorrectly next to the book title. It should be Wolfe not Wolf.

    I apparently can't reply to Anonymous of April 1st, 2013, but in the list "Great Fantasy Books" the author appears as "Steven King" instead of Gene Wolfe.

    I bought this piece of excrement on the recommendation of this blog... This utterly uncompelling, pretentious, soulless and meandering mess an absolutely waste words.

    Don't read it, don't even look in its general direction.

    Want "literary fantasy"? Try Susannah Clark, Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams or you know what (in some cases) even Irvine Welsh but by no means, and under any circumstances, "shadow and claw" : utter crap for total idiots.

    You couldn't possibly be more wrong. Ask Neil Gaiman.

    Such a wonderful book, but please, please correct the name of the author. Steven King couldnĀ“t write this book in a million years.
