Jack Vance: Science fiction’s master of magic, mischief and sex


There are a lot of obituaries of Vance all over the internet. This one is by some distance the best, showing a detailed familiarity with the whole body of his work and a sensitive understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of his writing. And I say that as a member of the Vance Integral Edition team whose job it was to know all 4.4 million words inside out!

Jack Vance may be gone, but his work will outlive us all.
