FANTASMS AND MAGICS – AND THE ART OF JINXMANSHIP

On the desolate world of Pangbom, the violent descendants of marooned starship-captains battle constantly for supremacy – in a medieval super-future where magic is as important a weapon as the axe and the broadsword. No warlord will fight without his jinxer, the martial magician whose powers must sway the battle where brain and muscle fail.

But now, as the mighty and ruthless Lord of Faide comes within reach of his goal of planetwide domination, Pangborn begins to fight back. And the jinxer stands impotent before beings that existed long before Man came searching for conquests among the stars...

Here is the very best of cosmic adventure from Nebula and Hugo Award winner Jack Vance, incomparable master of Science Fantasy.
