Next up a classic from a lesser known SF and Fantasy author, Jack Vance.
Vance had his own breed of SF that as far as I can make out is strongly influenced by fantasy, but as I've not read any of his books I can't comment.
Well I was not that impressed with this book at all. The first half is very much fantasy-I didnt see it as SF at all, then just after the halfway point it changed and became an SF adventure. Much better but by then it was too late.
