Ace M-149 Eyes of the Overworld GOOD
The Eyes Of The Overworld
By Jack Vance
Cover by Jack Gaughan.
In the dim far future of Earth, when the sun had shrunk to a small red disk in the dark sky and the race of Man lived in isolated cities that echoed with the vastness of the world's history, science, myth and magic had become one. Sorcerers who read the books of ancient times held great power, and fearsome monsters created in ages long forgotten stalked the land.
In this world of mystery and danger, the adventurer known as Cugel the Clever was forced to undertake a quest by Iucounu the Laughing Magician. Cugel had to find the legendary artifact known as The Eyes of the Overworld. He must face fearsome monsters such as the Erb, the Deodand, the Grue and the Leucomorph. He must cross strange isolated communities whose customs were as surprising as they were deadly. With an alien from the stars lodged in his liver (!), Cugel sets forth.

Cover is clean with edge wear and a dogear at the bottom. Spine has a few rub spots on the right edge, and a tiny split in the lower right corner. Pages are white! Binding is tight and square.
