Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in The Last Castle
by Jack Vance

Unfortunately, this excellent work by Vance is not currently in print. The novel is about a group of expatriates who have created a set of castles on an otherwise uninhabited world; they pursue an effete aristocratic lifestyle. Their servants inexplicably revolt; what will gentlemen do? This novel shows Vance's verbal style like no other.
