The Genius of Jack Vance

Wonderful article in the NEW YORK TIMES about Jack Vance:

It is nice to see one of our genre's few authentic masters finally getting some recognition from the mainstream press. I agree with most everything that's said here: Vance is not only a great SF and fantasy writer, he's a great writer, period, and deserves a place in the canon of American literature.
