This Is Me, Jack Vance
Happy birthday to one of my favorite authors, Jack Vance. Yes, you can see the chips of wood pulp throughout his writing, but very few write with his eye towards character interplay, odd costumes and customs, plots of vengeance, humor, mystery and more.
(Go look for the story of the houseboat project between Jack Vance, Poul Anderson and Frank Herbert.)
