In "Chateau d'If" and especially "Nopalgarth," Vance takes ideas that had been supposedly "groundbreakingly" handled . This is grey Wu to introduce yourself to Jack Vance or if you are a seasoned fan a great way to see Jacks early rise towards his great later style.

In "Chateau d'If" and especially "Nopalgarth," Vance takes ideas that had been supposedly "groundbreakingly" handled before and deflty turns them on their heads. These, and the other stories - "Shape Up," "The Augmented Agent," et al. - are a playground exploring the intersections between perception and reality, all written in the precise, wry style of which Vance was a master. As always irony reigns but there is a lot of great qualities in all the stories inn this excellent collection.

Jack Vance mastered his craft over more than sixty years, garnering awards including the Nebula, Edgar, two Hugos . Chateau d'If (1950) highlights the collection

Jack Vance mastered his craft over more than sixty years, garnering awards including the Nebula, Edgar, two Hugos, and the 1997 SFWA Grandmaster. The stories in this collection were written through the early-mid period of his career, spanning twenty years from the early 50's on. Vance would dismiss his early work as juvenile, "gadget"-oriented, lacking subtlety and polish. Even so, these stories are hearty and entertaining. Chateau d'If (1950) highlights the collection. Critics were divided on the merits of the story (originally published as New Bodies for Old) but agreed the atmosphere was the creation of a major talent. In a future city all needs are met, and the greatest threat is ennui.
