Foreverness

Jack Vance

Jack Vance passed away at home on the evening of Sunday May 26, 2013, ending a long, rich and productive life. Recognized most widely as an author, family and friends also knew a generous, large-hearted, rugged, genial, hard-working, optimistic and unpretentious individual whose curiosity, sense of wonder and sheer love of life were an inspiration in themselves. Author, friend, father and grandfather – there will never be another like Jack Vance.



~ ☆ Raise a Toast to Jack Vance ☆ ~



"At the last moments of the universe, with eternal darkness converging from all sides, surely someone will arise and cry out: ‘Hold back the end for a final moment, while I pay tribute to the gallant brewmasters who have provided us a pathway of golden glory down the fading corridors of time!’ And then, is it not possible that a bright gap will appear in the dark, through which the brewmasters are allowed to proceed, to build a finer universe?"

Dear Mr Vance,

My journey started with the discovery of Emphyrio, continued through a kaleidoscope of your other books, and remains thankfully incomplete, as I still have yet to read a few of your works. Thank you for the many times that you've transported me to far and fantastic places. You will long be remembered.

I discovered Jack Vance through a fever for early SF writers. I must admit i hated fantasy or adventure books at that moment and Jack Vance just turned my mind with his amazing books. What a great memory, reading the dying earth cycle while listen to iron maiden ! beyond his death, it is also the end of a great generation of authors that just left ashamed so many today's "SF" writers.

I've read Jack Vance since I was fifteen, hooked forever by a short passage in The Dying Earth that mentions a tiny pink light bobbing in a distant, dark forest. No other explanation, everything left to my imagination. I've never stopped reading and rereading him since (I'm now 43). RIP to another master.

Dear Mr. Vance, Like others here I first came across your name in the back of my D&D book. I'm so glad I did! After Tolkien and Howard, I felt like I had nowhere to go. You gave me more fantastic worlds of fantasy. Then you led me for the first time into space. Thanks for the reads, Jack. My toast to you will be picking a few of them up again.

when I was born yet still i grew up with his ideals' running around in my head. The worlds he
brought alive and the incredible characters opened a new world for me, authors should thank him for another fan of sci fi and fantasy novels as he was instrumental in my interest in reading, so other authors will have novels purchased as I in whatever small way wish to have that excitement of entering a diff' world or riding along with a new character on his adventure's.

I learned to love the writing of Jack Vance during my teens in the 1970s. My dad had a near-complete collection of his science fiction and I fell in love immediately with the exquisite prose, arch humor, deeply imaginative worlds, and unforgettable characters. Vance is, by far, my favorite author and I can pick up any of his books at any time, turn to any page, and be instantly immersed in pure reading pleasure. I'm saddened by his death, of course, but he was fortunate to live to a ripe old age and by all accounts his life was a very good one. Now, like Navarth, he becomes legend, and though I never knew him, I'll miss him just the same.

There was never a writer who could write like Jack Vance. There was never a writer whose works I have read and re-read as much, with the sole possible exception of JRR Tolkien. There was never a writer who combined WIT with IMAGINATION and sheer ADVENTURE as well as Jack. His works inspired me with a longing, now unquenchable, to have more of the same. I am glad that he has, in some ways, begun to receive his due recognition as a writer. Thank you.

My favorite genre writer of all time - how I have loved Jack Vance's stories for decades!
What a loss!
HE WILL BE MISSED!

Your ways with words and turns of phrase* are truly unique, often imitated but never duplicated. May your works live ever and on. RIP Jack Vance.
*And let us not forget your wonderful use of footnotes.
