Read in October, 2009

Recently an old friend I had not heard from in 20 years got in touch and we agreed that 40 years on we still enjoyed the books of Jack Vance. What I had not realised was that Jack Vance had written a final book "Lurulu". He is now in his nineties so is unlikely to write another. I duly bought a copy of "Lurulu" (in fact due to a mistake I actually bought two copies!) but before reading it decided to re-read "Ports of call" which is the start of the story which concludes in Lurulu".

This is probably the fourth time I have read this and I enjoyed it as much as the other times. There is not much of a plot but more of a series of descriptions of events. However this is at what Jack Vance excels. It's certainly a book I will read again.
