ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy LiteratureI ve already said numerous times how much I love Jack Vance so I ll skip all that this time You can read other reviews on this page if you missed thatThe Eyes of the Overworld is the second part of Tales of the Dying Earth and the main character is one of my favorite Vance characters the self titled Cugel the Clever Cugel is not the kind of guy you want to have dealings with he s clever sneaky completely selfish and remorseless He is always trying to figure out how he can take advantage of other people in order to make his own circumstances betterIn The Eyes of the Overworld Cugel decides to burglarize the house of Iucounu the Laughing Magician so he can sell some of Iucounu s thaumaturgical artifacts But the magician catches Cugel and punishes him by setting him on a uest to procure a lens which allows the wearer to view the overworldCugel is clever but as clever as he is he often finds himself facing a foe who at least temporarily manages to outwit him which invariably surprises Cugel This time his uest leads him on a series of misadventures in which he gets captured by rat people is forced to be the watchman of a village steals than one person s inheritance deals with demons trades a woman for information impersonates a god and travels a million years into the past Wherever he goes Cugel sometimes purposely and sometimes unwittingly leaves sorrow and destruction in his wake He deprives people of their hope their faith and often their livesThis doesn t sound like it should be very entertaining but oh it is That s because the story is written in Jack Vance s singular style high language bizarre occurrences and Vance s characteristic humor I hate to say it again but the best comparison I can make is to Monty Python If you re a fan of that type of strange dark humor then this should be your thingI listened to The Eyes of the Overworld in audio format I can t express how excited I was to learn that Brilliance Audio was producing these and I m pleased to report that they did an excellent job Arthur Morey once again brought out all of the nuances of Vance s humor and he made a perfect Cugel In fact The Eyes of the Overworld was even better than The Dying Earth probably because it follows the same main character rather than being divided up into separate short stories I loved it

Tales of a trickster godLike stories about Anansi Coyote and Loki Jack Vance describes the misadventures of Cugel the Clever in picaresue fashion Set in Vance s far far future world of the The Dying Earth in his inimitable style blending elements of science fiction and fantasy this 1966 publication is at times hilarious but always entertainingWhile reading I smiled freuently and laughed out loud at least a couple of times and Vance made me think about the irascible nature of loveable rogues No doubt from time immemorial their have been stories about those who think outside the box those who march to the beat of a different drummer who for all purposes make their own rules and make the rest of us insane make us roll our eyes and smirkMy wife and I raised three boys and there were times when as parents we needing to punish a child for some behavior I can recall many times when even amidst the scolding I had to turn my head so the little imp would not see me smile What is it about mischievous comportment that draws the grudging veneration from us all at some time or another Is it a latent sense of respect for creativity Are we inside at least a little jealous or admiring of those who can set convention aside and accomplish outside of rules what we wish we couldReading Vance s story I thought of the fascination with outlaws and criminals of the charisma of gangsters and ne er do wells Vance in describing Cugel has hit the nail on the head of a true anti hero and Vance with his tongue in cheek wit and his subtle humor is uniuely ualified to deliver such a workA must read for Vance fans this is just fun reading and let me opine that American readers who do not uite get Sir Terry Pratchett s British humor may enjoy Vance s uirky writing
