Synopsis: ALL FOUR PLANET OF ADVENTURE NOVELS IN ONE VOLUME!

Stranded on the distant planet of Tschai, young Adam Reith is the sole survivor of a space mission who discovers the world inhabited — not only by warring alien cultures, but human slaves as well, taken early in Earth’s history. Reith must find a way off the planet to warn Earth of Tschai’s deadly existence.

Against a backdrop of baroque cities, sumptuous palaces and riotous inns, Reith will encounter deadly wastrels and murderous aliens, dastardly villains and conniving scoundrels.

And always a random beauty in need of rescue...

About the Author: Jack (John Holbrook) Vance (August 28, 1916, San Francisco — May 26, 2013, Oakland) was a famous American mystery, fantasy and science fiction author. Most of his work has been published under the name Jack Vance. Vance's stories written in the 1940s and 1950s cover many science fiction themes, with a tendency to emphasis on mysterious and biological themes (ESP, genetics, brain parasites, body switching, other dimensions, cultures) rather than technical ones. By the 1960s, Vance had developed a futuristic setting which he came to call the "Gaean Reach". Thereafter, all his science fiction was, more or less explicitly, set therein. The Gaean Reach is loose and ever expanding. Each planet has its own history, state of development and culture. Within the Reach conditions tend to be peaceable and commerce tends to dominate. At the edges of the Reach, out in the lawless "Beyond", conditions are sometimes, but not always, less secure.

Alexander Feht (born in 1961 near the Siberian city of Novosibirsk), a Russian American poet, translator, and music composer, spent more than 15 years preparing and polishing his Russian translations of Jack Vance’s masterpieces. He personally discussed with Jack Vance some daunting difficulties involved in translation of Vance’s rhythmical and complex prose, whose mesmerizing character and timeless nobility are often lost in poor translations.
