Review of An Evil Guest by Gene Wolfe

Part of the Worlds Without End Grand Master Reading Challenge.

Afternote: Loved the cover art for this book.  

This one was so promising!  Noir meets Cthulhu! But it turned out to be endless bland dialogue and a muddled ending that had me speedreading to get to the last page.  I always like Wolfe because he has such a range, especially in the short fiction I have read of his.  Come to think of it, An Evil Guest could have been compressed into a great short story.
