Jack Vance

Thanks to Grognardia, here's a great link:

Jack Vance is one of my favorite authors. I think I have everything he's published (except the mysteries), although sadly I missed out on the Vance Integral Edition - I only heard about it long after it had gone out of print).

In Gold Throne in Shadow, there's a brief homage to Vance's style in an encounter with a doorman. I wish I could do more, but I just can't sustain the moral dissolution of his characters. Or the language.
