Anyone here like Jack Vance? If so, which Vance series and stand-alone books do you like best? I just started reading his books and am becoming very fond of them. The Lyonesse Trilogy is brilliant. My user-name is actually taken from the main protagonist of that series! I'm currently waiting to receive a first-edition hardcover of Araminta Station in the mail. I also ordered a hardback Planet of Adventure omnibus some time ago but it hasn't arrived yet which makes me think it may have gotten lost (unfortunately not a rare thing to happen when ordering books from the USA). I wish to get these Vance titles eventually: 1. Wild Thyme, Green Magic 2. Blue World, the 3. Jack Vance Reader, the 4. Maske: Thaery 5. Durdane 6. Many Worlds of Magnus Ridolph, the 7. To Live Forever 8. Showboat World 9. Hard Luck Diggings It's a shame that much of his books are out-of-print and expensive to get. I want to get most, if not all, of the above books in hardcover format. That will cost me an arm and leg, but I'm the type of person who usually always chooses hardcover over softcover. As long as I can find hardbacks of the above for $50 or less, I should be fine.
