|Title||Ports of Call and Lurulu
cover art by Koen Vyverman
Young Myron Tany flees a mundane life as an economist to become the supercargo on the deep-space tramp freighter Glicca. Traveling among the widely different worlds of the Gaean Reach, finding adventure and hair’s-breadth escapes, ferrying passengers who range from pious pilgrims to cynical showgirls, Myron journeys on in search of lurulu: the mythic “fulfillment of heart’s desire.”
Grandmaster Jack Vance’s final two novels are rich in humanity and humor, a testament to the truth that life’s journey is not about where we finally end up; it’s about what we do along the way.
