Vandals of the Void 2.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

This is a somewhat mildly entertaining space opera story from probably the late '30's. The actual author is James Morgan Walsh. The confusion comes from a book of the same name by the incomparably better author Jack Vance. The main character is named Jack Sanders (not Jack Vance as another reviewer has stated) although a character named Vance briefly makes an appearance in the novel. I haven't read the real Jack Vance's Vandals of the Void (one of the few books by him I haven't read) and despite it's being written for young teen boys, I have no doubt it's much better than this one.

Not written by Jack Vance. Barnes and Noble, you owe me 99 cents.

An incompetent story flying under false colors. The main protagonist's name is Jack Vance.
