It seems that something called Afton House Books will be publishing the COMPACT VANCE INTEGRAL EDITION in five volumes. The sensation is that, if the sample pages are to be believed, the books will be typeset in Minion, a real typeface! Finally reason prevails, and all of Vance will be available in a readable format. Hopefully this more generally signals the end of the decade-long stranglehold of evil forces on Jack Vance and his works. Ding, dong! the witch is dead, etc.
