"Of the many novels written by SF Grandmaster Vance, his Dying Earth series remains the most popular and most memorable of his oeuvre. Now top SF and fantasy authors…have contributed stories and reminiscences to this mammoth collection of tales set in that unforgettable universe, one in which Earth's sun is a dying red dwarf and in which irascible mages, clever scoundrels, and ordinary folk wait around for their world's inevitable demise…. The twenty-three stories not only capture the unique feel of Vance's dying universe but stand individually as one of the strongest gatherings of writers to pay homage to one of their own. This is highly recommended."
