All I can say is it's about time! I have suspected for years that some risk-taking publisher would re-publish the VIE in a more affordable set. I suppose word about Subterranean's successes with their Vance releases has gotten around, and someone realized that Vance fans are hungry for more of his stuff.

I as also glad to hear that Amiante (the name of the font used in the VIE) will not be included. I never cared for the font myself, although I suppose I would have lived with it had I ordered an original VIE. I sympathize with those of you who ordered only to find out later that 'someone' decided to 'invent' a new font and test it out at your expense. All that aside, I cannot wait for this to become available.

Felicibus brevis, miseris hora longa.
