Jack Vance (1916-2013)

The above cover gallery celebrates the late Jack Vance, who died last Sunday (26 May 2013). There's plenty of information to be found about Vance at his official website, at Wikipedia and at the Science Fiction Encyclopedia. Below is a list of his books that I compiled as an aide memoire to help me put together the cover gallery.
