Overview

When Jack Vance decided to become a writer, a “million words a year” man as he put it so pragmatically at the time, he also gave fantastic literature one of its most cherished and distinctive voices. Though primarily a novelist throughout his long and distinguished career, this Hugo, Nebula, Edgar and World Fantasy Award-winning Grand Master also produced many short and mid-length works.

Wild Thyme, Green Magic collects an alien’s handful of these wondrous tales, among them the author’s first-ever sale, “The World Thinker”, the unforgettable “Chateau d’If”, the stylish “Green Magic”, the no-punches-pulled “DP”, the macabre, almost Gothic “Seven Exits from Bocz”.
