Review: Amazon Best Books of the Month, December 2010: Sixty years ago, in The Dying Earth, Jack Vance introduced his own version of the distant future, where the sun has become a red giant, powerful wizards fight over the scraps of ruined civilizations, and a handful of colorful and eccentric characters insist on having a few adventures before oblivion descends. In Songs of the Dying Earth, 22 sci-fi and fantasy writers, from newcomers like Liz Williams and Byron Tetrick to established names like Neil Gaiman and George R.R. Martin, each offer their own snippets of Vance's Dying Earth. In one story, an apprentice architect stumbles into a duel between two powerful mages, for example, while in another a poet-philosopher tries (and fails) to forget the coming apocalypse in a drunken haze. Some stories capture Vance's style and inventiveness, while others recreate his perfect combination of black humor and creeping dread. Songs of the Dying Earth is both a respectful homage to a sci-fi master and a whirlwind tour of a world that readers will want to revisit. --Darryl Campbell

Its influence extends to the realms of graphic novels, fantasy role-playing games and computer gaming. . . For the first time, other writers of fantasy have been invited to enter this darkly beautiful world and make its alluring strangeness their own. They have returned with extraordinarily vivid and mysterious tales of grimoires, of smoke and ghouls, of jewels and monsters. The twenty-two contributors to this collection of stories to honour Jack Vance include the genre's finest stars over several generations.' 660 pages. Photos available upon request. Signed by Editor.
