The Many Worlds of Magnus Ridolph

by Jack Vance
Release date: 1966
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, short stories

Magnus Ridolph, at first glance, did not look like an interstellar troubleshooter. He was not tall and muscular, his skin had not been turned to a rugged colour of bronze by the numerous distant suns he had visited, and his voice and manner seemed far too mild for an adventurer.

Yet there was a chill hardness in his mild blue eyes that warned of the deceptiveness in his appearance. Throughout the galaxy there were men and other beings – Yellowbirds, Tau Gemini ant-things, Hectian anthropes – who could testify to the deadliness that lurked behind those eyes.

In Magnus Ridolph, Jack Vance has created one of the most memorable characters of his award-winning career.
