Marune: Alastor 933 | Jack Vance

Loved it, wanted more of it, but unfortunately the end was lackluster, and felt rushed (again I would hope it was a longer book properly finished). All in all, adding Jack Vance to my "authors I need to read more of" list!
This book will be added to one of the #readingchallenge: #dancingwithfantasyandscifi2019 in the prompt "on a different planet".

Texreader Vance is my husband‘s fave author. 9mo
Liriope @Texreader It's the first book I read from him, and so far I'm liking it! 9mo
Liriope @Texreader I finished the book and loved it. What would be your husband's favourite book from Vance? 9mo
Texreader @Liriope He says there are many: the first Lyonesse series, Wyst (in the series you read), Araminta Station, Dying Earth and he says many others. He said there could be a list of at least 20. I can‘t even begin to tell you what his collection looks like. They are his most “precious” possessions 9mo

The Dragon Masters | Jack Vance
post image

Jo Walton's Hugos history made me want to reread a couple of Vernor Vinge's novels, so I dug through my discards shelf to see if I'd passed them on yet. They're gone, alas, but I did find another Hugo-winner I forgot I had--probably because it should've been in La TBR instead.

The cover lies; this won Best Short Fiction, not Best Novel. It's part of an Ace Double with THE FIVE GOLD BANDS, and I think my dad gave it to me.

JoRead That's a pretty awesome cover. I used to read a lot of scifi in my more tender years but not anymore. One of these days I'll get back to it 😊🛸🚀🛰 14mo
xicanti @JoRead my early brushes with classic SF left me with the impression the whole genre was ideas-over-characters, so I've only been reading it for ten years, and most of what I've read is pretty recent. I've got a lot of gaps to fill as I search for the more character-centric older stuff (or the stuff that's so cool I don't mind flat characterization). 14mo

This is one of the things I love about Jack Vance‘s writing style: he‘s super specific about things, but because he made it up, it means nothing. Or, better, it means whatever you want it to mean. In my imagination, cinniborines are low, thorny shrubs, highly sculpted like topiary or banzai trees. And colorful.

Wyst: Alastor 1716 (in Russian) | Jack Vance, Alexander Feht

This was a hard read, as events just kept piling onto poor Jantiff. Like a train wreck, I couldn‘t look away, which is a good thing, as it‘s a satisfying book. On to book 3!

Jillybeane I didn‘t read the Russian version. I don‘t know why it says that. 1y

I almost didn‘t read this when I realized it had a heavy sports theme. I would‘ve really missed out, and now I‘m on to book 2 💖
