☯ Full Synopsis : "His exploration ship blasted from orbit, Terran scout Adam Reith is stranded on Tschai, a world colonized by three alien species -- the Chasch, the Dirdir, and the Wannek -- while the planet's original inhabitants, the mysterious Pnume, lurk underground. In the third book of the four-volume cycle, Reith resolves to build his own spacecraft, to escape Tschai and return to Earth. But the project requires a vast quantity of sequins, the precious stones that are Tschai's common currency -- which can be gathered only in the wildlands of the Carabas, where predatory Dirdir hunt men for pleasure. Reith conceives an unheard-of strategy to win wealth, but its success brings him into contact with the seamy crime boss Aila Woudiver, and leads to a deadly confrontation under alien justice. Tschai is grandmaster Jack Vance at his unparalleled adventure-spinning peak. - Matt Hughes "The Dirdir" is Book III of the Tschai (Planet of Adventure) sequence, and Volume 36 of the Spatterlight Press Signature Series. Released in the centenary of the author's birth, this handsome new collection is based upon the prestigious Vance Integral Edition.

Each book bears a facsimile of the author's signature and a previously-unpublished photograph, chosen from family archives for the period the book was written.

In the first book of the four-volume cycle, Reith falls in with a barbaric tribe of free humans, each weirdly ruled by the hereditary symbolic badge he wears. To recover his wrecked scout craft, he embarks on a perilous journey to the decadent Chasch city of Dadiche, accompanied by Traz, a teenage barbarian, Anacho, an escaped slave of the birdlike Dirdir, and Ylin-Ylan, a princess rescued from a brutal cult. In Dadiche, one slip will bring certain death.

☯ Full Synopsis : "The Dirdir (Book 3 of 4 in Tschai series, Russian translation) Adam Reith has failed twice to acquire a spaceship. He decides to build a ship from scratch, but this requires vast resources; his only hope is to win valuable sequins away from the terrifying realm of the Carabas, hunting preserve of the Dirdir. Even then, his greatest adversary is the cunning, monstrous Aila Woudiver... Tschai is a planet orbiting the star Carina 4269, 212 light-years from Earth. It is populated by three alien, mutually hostile species; the displaced, native Pnume; and various human races, some of whom live as slaves or clients of the aliens. Each of the four novels relates Reith's adventures with one of the species, and is named after that species."Article| Jack Vance| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The Pnume were an ancient race of the planet Tschai, living underground in a vast network of caverns with their human slave-species, the Pnumekin: The Pnume were the historians of Tschai, collecting its past with ruthless and scholarly dedication. Surface-dwellers never saw the Pnume - if they were lucky. Adam Reith was not so fortunate. The Pnume had heard rumors of a strange man, claiming to have come from the planet Earth, and they wanted him for Foreverness, the museum of Tschai life. Adam Reith was about to become an alien exhibit."Article| Jack Vance| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Science fiction loves strangeness. It relishes oddities, even when it piles on fear and dystopian loathing. The technical term for a fascination with the strange and alien is xenophilia, just as the term for a terror of the strange is xenophobia. At its core, then, science fiction is...Xeno Fiction. So science fiction seeks out the strange, roams far from home in space and time, looks with avid eagerness upon the ways of the Others, human or alien. It participates, in brilliantly lighted imagination, in their strange lives. In this second gathering from Van Ikin's critical journal, Science Fiction: A Review of Speculative Literature, writers of the alien are investigated with wit and insight. G. Travis Regier follows the Other into its own home, accompanying those experts in the alien, C. J. Cherry and Samuel R. Delany. In the book's long key essay, Terry Dowling pursues the Art of Xenography as exemplified by Jack Vance's "General Culture" novels. Three expert commentators look into Booker Prize-winner Peter Carey's postcolonial and postmodern frolics into alternative realities. And the Xeno fictions of Isaac Asimov, Greg Egan, Mary Gentle, Ursula K. Le Guin, Naomi Mitchison, Neal Stephenson, and Stanley Weinbaum are read as their road maps into the strange. Eleven revealing essays on speculative fiction by some of the best critics in the field."Article| Damien Broderick| Statement ..."
