The Demon Princes vol. 1 (Orb edition, 1997) – Jack Vance

5 out of 5

$19 US bucks for 3 books and 450 pages of the Demon Princes first three entries – a fair deal, and all I could ask for presentation-wise, with a table of contents and page headers that clearly demark which book is which. The 6″ x 8″ish sizing is perfect for either two- or one-handed reading, with the page / cover stock thick enough to be durable, but also not heavy, behind a streamlined-designed cover image of a spaceship; a handsome, portable book.
