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?"

- Lurulu -

From Lyonesse to the Dying Earth; from the Beyond to the Alastor Cluster; from Big Planet to Tschai...
Demodand and Sandestin, Phung and Progressive Eel, all mourn the passing of (one of) the greatest sf, fantasy and mystery writers of the last two centuries.
Let us raise a glass of punch to the genius that was John Holbrook Vance.

More important than his obvious wit and mastery of language, Mr. Vance's breadth of vision -- and nearly limitless sense of the power of the human spirit -- were contagious to generatious of readers. He was a truly great man.

Simply the best science fiction/fantasy writer of our time.
The Dying Earth series of books and Lyonnesse trilogy were ground breaking fantasy.
He was also a master at highlighting the vast array of human cultures and how an environment can impact the development of culture.

I had the privilege of meeting Jack and Norma when they visited Kansas City for a convention in the 1990s. In awe of Jack's amazing talent, I touched by their kindness and humility, even as the rascal disappointed me by saying he was through writing about the Dying Earth.
Jack's work became a fixture in my life in the 1960s with the discovery of 'Mazirian the Magician' in L. Sprague de Camp's fine anthology, 'The Spell of Seven' in the 1960s and immediately sought out a copy of 'The Dying Earth.'
I was simply captivated by the eloquence, diction, wry humor and rich style that have been described so well and often by so many other readers and writers, and every new (and new-to-me) Vance title from that day forward was a cause for great joy.
As Robert Silverberg observed in an essay some years back, Jack's stories should be catalogued by number, like the old joke about in-jokes, so that discriminating readers could simply call out '47' or '93' to elicit a common recollection among the group, as of a particularly fine wine, musical opus or clever joke.
I am saddened beyond words to know there will be no more numbers, but my life has been enriched immeasurably by this wonderful man and his work, and my gratitude is abiding. My heart goes out to his family in this time of loss.

Thank you for your written works --- they meant a lot to me, and I would have been a better person if I'd discovered them when I was younger. Thank you to your family for sharing your gifts with us --- I know that must have been a sacrifice at time and it is appreciated.

I just wrote in a card being given to a young lady who is just graduating high school,

``Life is a message written in ink. Write carefully, write beautifully, & write w/ character.''

Congratulations on a life written w/ care, using beautiful words and w/ a character which shines as an example of what men should aspire to be.

Jack Vance a laissé derrière lui une oeuvre immense et riche. Ses descriptions nous transportaient dans un univers autre et merveilleux en quelques mots.

I grew up with Jack Vance his novels. I was a huge fan of Cugel and recently decided, at age 41, to read Planet of Adventure over again. I was, once more, overwhelmed by the storyline, the method how Vance is describing all of his exotic creatures and different cultures and his main characters.
Then I remember that Vance, just like me, had travelled a lot during his live and for me it was obvious that his way of telling stories have been influenced by this.

Not only did I grew up with Vance his novels, they had a huge impact on what I've become. I dare say that much of my creativity as a graphical designer has been made possible through reading Vance's rich and wonderful cultures and exotic worlds.

Even though I'm saddened that he is no more, the knowledge that his stories will live on in my thoughts makes me humble and I can only give Vance a salute with the words: "rest peacefully, you'll be in my heart forever!"

Thank you, Jack Vance. Your work was beautiful. You were a god. My copy of Madouc is covered in folded pages where I marked particularly beautiful passages, Araminta Station may well have been the best book ever written, and the end of The Face was . . . amazing forever. Sleep well. You'll be missed.

I found that in any area of arts there is one special hero for you, without whom your life would have been so much less rich. I grew up reading the books of Jack Vance and, indeed, he's been my hero in literature all along.

My first Jack Vance experience was reading THE DEMON PRINCES. Since then I searched for his other books and lost my self in his marvelous creations. He embodied the sense of wonder. I am fortunate to have a copy of THE DYING EARTH and TO LIVE FOREVER signed by Jack. He will live forever in his books and the hearts of his many fans.
