PLANET OF ADVENTURE by Jack Vance

PLANET OF ADVENTURE

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Four quintessential Vance adventures--(1968-75) City of the Chasch, Servants of the Wankh, The Dirdir, and The Pnume--now issued for the first time in a single volume and for the first time in hardcover. The splendid setting is Tschai, the single planet of a dim brown sun, where marooned Earthman Adam Reith encounters four brilliantly realized alien races (per the titles) and a teeming, often deadly flora and fauna in his efforts to survive and eventually return home. Exotic adventure, dastardly villains, beautiful women, baroque landscapes, all served up with the inimitable, incomparable Vance style and wit: dazzlingly inventive, utterly delightful, and absolutely, unequivocally essential to any collection or library (not to mention terrific value for the money).
