Heres a special treat for Jack Vance's legion of readers! Three complete novels, long unavailable, back in print in one book!
The nopal came from outer space to take over the brains of humanity - and it took the thinking of another set of alien monsters to prepare a mental Armageddon!
SON OF THE TREE
The mighty tree of life ruled a world, dominated the sky, and held the power of life and death over millions of worshippers - until Joe Smith came along.
THE HOUSES OF ISZM
The best homes in the universe were grown from seeds genetically programmed on the planet lszm. The theft of just one such seed would be a prize worth billions!
Here's a triple treat by the award-winning author of the Demon Princes novels, the Tschai saga, and the Alastor series.
