MASKE: THAERY

Jubal Droad, a young and ambitious member of the scorned ""Glint"" population of Thaery on the planet Maske, bulldozes his way into the affairs of the ruling ""Theriot"" class--a chilly and devious set whose chosen manner, is an airily impersonal and endlessly ingenious rudeness. Seeking revenge on a noble Theriot who has wronged him, Jubal finds himself exploring an intrigue that threatens both Glints and Theriots. Vance is an adroit tale-spinner with a gift for inventing places, situations, and amusing background impedimenta. But the plot mechanics of this story smack of haste and thumbtacks.
