    For some of us anyway.

    I just found out that Jack Vance passed away on May 26th. He was my favorite writer by far.

    Rest in peace Jack, and thanks for all the memories.

    An avid SF reader, I can honestly say that I do not remember ever reading any of his books. Do you have any suggestions?

    Nah, I prefer to buy, but I do appreciate the offer (we maintain an extensive library). They need to be memorable stories though...some of my favorites are the Uplift Trilogy, The Forever War, Starship Troopers, and the HeeChee books if that gives you an idea of what I like to read. [I also recently re-read the John Carter, Tarzan and Skylark series (the latter by EE Doc Smith...what a hoot :D ).]
