Dust jacket by Tom Kidd

Jack Vance is science fiction’s world-builder par excellence, a multi-award-winning Grand Master and much-loved doyen of the art of the planetary adventure. In a career spanning 59 years, Vance has been responsible -- more than any other writer in the field -- for creating exotic alien cultures and living, breathing worlds, among them Tschai, Durdane and Big Planet, Trullion, Cadwal and Wyst, Aerlith, Fader and Dar Sai.

Now, in a single impressive volume, The Jack Vance Reader brings together three of the master’s very best planetary adventures: the internationally acclaimed Emphyrio, the classic interplanetary whodunnit, The Domains of Koryphon, and the provocative and unforgettable The Languages of Pao.

Trade: fully cloth bound hardcover edition
Limited: 250 numbered copies, signed by author, housed in a custom slipcase
Lettered: 26 copies, signed by author, housed in a custom traycase

From Green Man Review:
The Jack Vance Reader is a worthwhile read. The three novels contained within give excellent testimony to the scope of Vance’s talent and imagination, and to his unmatched skill at painting gloriously decadent settings of untold power and lushness.”

From SFF.WORLD:
The Jack Vance Reader provides a snapshot of Vance’s mastery over language for those who may be most familiar with his writing through The Dying Earth saga. Furthermore, this volume will be a great companion piece to the other volumes Subterranean is publishing of and in homage to Vance’s work.”
