The Dragon Masters and Other Stories is available in paperback and as an e-book from Spatterlight Press. Spatterlight has done Vance fans a great service by reprinting almost all of his out of print books. I hope Vance fans will support their efforts by purchasing from them. I own many of them and they are very high quality and a pleasure to hold and read. This collection includes The Dragon Masters (novella), The Last Castle and The Miracle Workers. A brief review of each is included below.

Jack Vance was always brilliant at imagining societies -- and the three novellas in this book have that common "leit motiv".

The Miracle Workers was too focused on warring and fighting for my taste. The second, Dragon Masters, was still fighting-war with a bit about different species/races interacting and not understand the others. The Last Castle, revolt of the masses. I think he has interesting ideas however I just don't really like his writing style.
