TOR DOUBLE 15 Two Hugo Winners!
The Last Castle
By Jack Vance
Cover by Brian Waugh
Take an inimitable style, in-depth creativity, and insight mixed with irony. Put them together and you have Jack Vance, a tradition that needs no introduction to science-fiction readers.
Have him weave his delicate artistry around castles and turrets, filling them with the strong personalities of a super-cultured culture, their irascible Birds and gauze insect-girl Phranes, all threatened by a crumbling ideology and an invasion force of uni-cognitive Meks.
Result: The Last Castle, well-deserved award winner.
By Robert Silverberg
Cover by Mark Ferrari
The original novella, as published in Galaxy in 1968, several years before it was expanded into a full-length novel.
Clean glossy covers with edge and corner wear. Two creases in the spine. Pages are off-white; binding is partially broken at one crease.
