Other good Wolfe Short Shorts:

"A Solar Labyrinth," "Westwind," "How the Whip Came Back," "Peritonitis,"
"The War Beneath the Tree," "Useful Phrases" (actually Wolfe's translation
of a Borges short story, but still good).  I also like the one that's in
Peace, the tall-tale about the cat and the big ship, and I also love the
little story about the sidhe at the end of Peace; some people also seem to
like "Suzanne Delage" more than I do.
