Hi all, 

Upon some recommendations I have started reading Gene WOlfe.  I got Wizard and Knight from the Library and loved them.  My question -  I just obtained Book of the Short Sun through PBS  - Yea!-  but now I am not sure if I should wait and read it after the LOng Sun Series or the New Sun series or both. 

Can someone tell me what order these should be read in and if that is even necessary?

I've only read Long Sun and Knight (still waiting on Wizard) but I'm pretty sure that Long, Short, and New are pretty much stand as  each a seperate series. I think there's some character crossover in Short and New, but not so much that you should read one before the other. I know Long takes place in the same universe, but it's a pretty big universe. ;-)
