☯ 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Each book bears a facsimile of the author's signature and a previously-unpublished photograph, chosen from family archives for the period the book was written. These unique features will be appreciated by all, from seasoned Vance collector to new reader sampling the spectrum of this author's influential work for the first time. - John Vance II"Article| Jack Vance| Statement ..."

☯ 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 ..."
