The fourth in the Fantasy Masterworks series, the Dying Earth saga inspired writers like Michael Moorcock and Gene Wolfe, who freely acknowledges his debt to Vance in his own Book of the New Sun. Here, in one volume, is Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy Award-winning author Jack Vance's classic Dying Earth saga comprising The Dying Earth, The Eyes of the Overworld, Cugel's Saga and Rhialto the Marvellous. Travel to a far distant future, when the sun bleeds red in a dark sky, where magic and science is one, and the Earth has but a few short decades to live ...

"Only Lord Dunsany could create worlds, names, atmospheres as magical as Jack Vance's; and Vance is a better storyteller." Poul Anderson "You can't possibly pass up any book by Jack Vance. He has perfected the trick of creating new worlds so deceptively real that after a while your own home seems imaginary." Jerry Pournelle ' Be warned: reading Vance is addictive.' George R.R. Martin 'A modern classic by one of the great fantasy and science fiction writers of the 20th Century. A rare tale of an Earth so far in the future as to be nearly unrecognisable to the contemporary reader. ' Raymond E. Feist

A science fantasy, perhaps? This is also the book that in some form the Dungeons and Dragons game appropriate the basic model for their magic system from way back when.

Set waaaaaaaaaayyyyy into the future, bizarre creatures and people abound, as does the ability to memorise and cast one-shot 'magic spells'.

An excellent deal, with several books in one here.
