Overview

Earth is a decadent world older than memory, the bloated red sun soon to wink out forever. Iucounu the Laughing Magician has for the second time magicked Cugel the Clever across the Ocean of Sighs, to faraway Shanglestone Strand. Beset by thieves and schemers, whose cunning almost equals his own, Cugel must fight the long way back to Iucounu's manse where he means to exact a comprehensive and memorable revenge, before the old red sun goes out forever. In his unique, sardonic prose, SF grandmaster Jack Vance weaves a full brimming measure of humor through a picaresque tale of treachery and adventure, where clashes of philosophy and moments of poignant irony will make you wince, even as you laugh. - Matt Hughes
