Wow.  Since I come from a country where book reviewers are only allowed to
employ approved phrases of Correct Criticism, I can only say,

"A master at the height of his powers."

That's my judgment of the book by its content.

In order to assist those who must judge _On Blue's Waters_ by its cover, I
merely give my assurance that yes, the guy in the boat with the funny
creature on board does indeed meet a naked young blonde woman sitting on a
rock in the sea.  The inaccuracy of the illustration is that the man should
not have a full head of hair.  It's important, and that's why it took Gene
Wolfe to write it.

"Have I said that time turns our lies into truths?" (_The Shadow of the
Torturer_, ch. 17 "The Challenge", end of chapter)
