Jack Vance is gone...

Jack Vance has passed away; if I may, here's a link to his website:

(If you're looking for some connection to Tekumel, Phil and he were friends; Phil did the first maps of Jack's Dying Earth for him in the 1950s.)


  1. That's news to me about the Barker-Vance connection! Have you seen the maps?

  2. Yes, I have. The originals are with the Vance Estate, I understand, and the published versions are in the original fanzine. I think I have a URL for the fanzine archive I saw them in; I'll look that up and get it to you.

    Phil was very active in F/SF fandom between 1948 and 1952, before he went to India. Lots of wonderful pictures and stories!!!
