    Ecce and Old Earth (Cadwal Chronicles): Written by Jack Vance, Edition, Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton Ltd [Paperback] by Jack Vance | 21 Feb out of 5 stars   I never thought of any of Jack Vance’s novels as candidates for the best science fiction or fantasy but if I could forget the works of any author so I could read them for the first time he would be top of the list. Everything he wrote was enjoyabl.

    I happened to mention my problem to a good friend Jack Vance, a noted science fiction writer. It turned out that he was currently negotiating with Lucasfilm over the rights to one of his novels. Jack kindly suggested that I fly to Oakland, and he’d put a call into Lucasfilm to discuss his business, and afterwards hand the phone to me. The Best of Jack Vance by Jack Vance A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. Pages can include considerable notes-in pen or highlighter-but the notes cannot obscure the text.

      It starts with a remarkably similar premise, and yet goes in a completely different direction. Despite this, it is probably the closest thing by an author who isn't Jack Vance to a Vance story. Guin wrote very little in his lifetime, but what seems to be his best-known work, "Beyond Bedlam," is on Project Gutenberg and I've been meaning to read it.

Jack Vance mastered his craft over more than sixty years, garnering awards including the Nebula, Edgar, two Hugos, and the SFWA Grandmaster. The stories in this collection were written through the early-mid period of his career, spanning twenty.

It is nice to see one of our genre's few authentic masters finally getting some recognition from the mainstream press. I agree with most everything that's said here: Vance is not only a great SF and fantasy writer, he's a great writer, period, and deserves a place in the canon of American literature.
