it was amazing

This was AMAZING. I fell in love with Jack Vance reading this novel and I can not for the life of me understand why I never read any Jack Vance before. I blame myself and the entire world for this oversight and I intend to correct the problem immediately. What an amazing combination of condensed writing and huge amounts of story. I can't believe this is only 156 pages long and yet Vance left no stone unturned as far as telling a complete story. I am off to read more Vance.

Jean-marcel SO right! This little book was my introduction to Vance, too, and it felt as though it were written just for people like me. Like you, I decided I needed to seek out more, and I've got much to look forward to! I've read many Vance books by now but I estimate still less than half his ouevre. Enjoy!

Kat  Hooper Don't blame me! I've been telling everybody!!
