When I picked up Dust of Far Suns, I didn't realize I'd be reading one of the author's books when he passed away. But sadly, he did pass away a few days ago. Which makes saying that I found the book to be just average a bit uncomfortable. I have read - and love - Vance's Dying Earth books. I thought I would enjoy this one more than I did.

I think this is out of print but I found it at a used bookstore and picked it up because I had never read anything by Vance. Some of the four short stories are stronger than others ("The Gift of Gab" is the standout) but there's definitely enough good and interesting stuff here that I want to check out some of Vance's novel-length work.
