Jack Vance:

The Vance Integral Edition

'The Vance Integral Edition’ conceived by Paul Rhoads to restore, preserve and promote the work of Jack Vance. The VIE filled 44 hardback volumes, and a special 45th volume of three novels written by Vance for Ellery Queen. The not-for-profit effort spanned years 1999 to 2006.

Paul Rhoads illustrated the books and led the project through many thousands of hours of work volunteered by over 300 people working worldwide via the internet.

650 44-volume sets were printed, in Reader’s and leatherbound Deluxe editions. Ours is a Reader’s edition with 46 volumes including the Gift Volume: Coup de Grace and Other Stories; an introduction to Vance's work in one volume.

The Dying Earth


Earth’s Final Days…

"Once it was a tall world of cloudy mountains and bright rivers, and the sun was a white blazing ball. Ages of rain and wind have beaten and rounded the granite, and the sun is feeble and red. The continents have sunk and risen. A million cities have lifted towers, have fallen to dust. In place of the old peoples a few thousand souls live. There is evil on Earth, evil distilled by time…Earth is dying and in its twilight…"

—Pandelume of Embelyon


Set in a distant future when our sun is about to expire, the six marvellous adventures in this, Vance’s first ever book, originally published in 1950, take us to a world filled with strange lands and ancient wonders, where the moon has long-since left the sky and science has been all but replaced by magic, where hopes and dreams for a golden tomorrow have given way to a decadent grandeur, outrageous schemes and the most desperate and reckless acts of derring-do imaginable.


In this fascinating world, home to pelgranes, erbs and Deodands, Gauns, gids and Twk-men, we meet Turjan of Miir in his unswerving quest to create artificial life, watch the cruel Mazirian the Magician as he pursues his latest dark obsession, observe the beautiful T’sais as she learns to find beauty in Earth’s final days. We enjoy the antics of the foolish, unforgettable Liane the Wayfarer (and the even more unforgettable Chun the Unavoidable!) in that bandit-troubadour’s quest for a fabulous tapestry, follow Ulan Dhor as he seeks the lost spells of a great magician in far-off Ampridatvir, join Guyal of Sfere in his search for ancient knowledge in the Museum of Man.


But, most important of all, we meet the world itself, this vivid, wondrous setting at the end of time, at once doomed and magical, elusive and yet always fascinating.

The Complete Lyonesse (Lyonesse #1-3)


The Elder Isles - an ancient land where chivalry and the realm of fairie exist side by side. A land of mystery, strange beauty, high adventure and arcane magic. Kings are at war, opposing magicians devise ever more cunning stratagems. It is a land where princesses and changelings both can become embroiled in political rivalries and the quest for the grail.


Jack Vance's Complete Lyonesse is a Gollancz leather 'Black Book' and perfect addition to the series, contains Suldrun's Garden, The Green Pearl, and Madouc (the novel for which Vance won the World Fantasy Award).
