Fiction in the News Articles
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 supported by their servants, the Meks which are manlike creatures native to a planet of Etamin.
('The Last Castle' by Jack Vance)
Their servants inexplicably revolt; what will gentlemen do? This novel shows Vance's verbal style like no other; it won both the Nebula Award and the Hugo Award.
