    Great, pulp beginning

    This is a fantastic collection of stories. A great look into the past of science-fiction by one of the greats.

    A fantasy classic, before the genre was mature

    The influence of Vance casts a long shadow. The magic system here became that for dungeons and dragons. The words, inspiration for generations of later writers. JV was a stylist. His words elaborate, rococo, precise, beautiful. It'll take a mind shift perhaps, but once you feel his dusk world settle around you in the haunting short stories, they'll be with you for life in the best way. If you've never read him, this is the perfect place to start.
