I guess I will see Ports of Call finds my favorite author at his most relaxed idly steering his passionless hero through a series of fascinating trips a

    Epub Jack Vance Ì Ports of Call PDF Ê Ports ofPDF Ì ports ebok, call kindle, Ports of ebok, Ports of Call PDFIf I'd read this as my first Vance book I would probably not have enjoyed it As it is I believe I've read most of his output and so I know what he's about And reading Ports of Call and so Lurulu is like exactly what it is one last fond loving look back over the landscapes and vistas that had been carved out of fire and stone over the last five decades a leisurely piece of nostalgia and the last opportunity to read some of his most beautiful descriptions and inventions without the annoyance of plot and tension to get in the wayFor it is the descriptions of his inventions that are most memorable about his writing Any fool can set up a swashbuckling plot; pirate captains and beauteous maidens are ten a penny; high fantasy and the fall of ancient kingdoms can be bought by the wheelbarrowload but there are few who can transport the reader directly to the surface o

    Epub Jack Vance Ì Ports of Call PDF Ê Ports ofPDF Ì ports ebok, call kindle, Ports of ebok, Ports of Call PDFThis is Jack Vance master builder of worlds societies and colourful characters And this book is just that A uite loose plot that is second to the rich Gaean Reach background in a light hearted joyous description of each of the ports of call And in the end a cliff end that it is not an end but a dire pause that impels you to follow the Glicca and her crew into the next book Lurulu if you like As there is nothing in the plot to hook you on but a mild interest nothing happens if you opt to lay down the story at this point Most likely I will got Lurulu to see how the things go on But there is no hurry Jack Vance is to be relished best without haste enjoying a good ale with some exotic dish and striking company if possible
