A great omnibus, in the style of John Carter Warlord of Mars but far more readable. One must, of course, judge this with appropriate context. This was not meant to be a poignant literary fiction. It was meant to be a simple men's adventure of its period, a fun SF with an smattering of fantasy. And while the plot is little more than a road trip adventure, Vance's vocabulary and fantasy-like language elevates the reader into a realm of guilty pleasure. Certainly worth reading for fans of Jack Vance.
