“Jack Vance's masterpiece, The Dying Earth, has inspired dozens of science fiction and fantasy authors. In Songs of the Dying Earth, Neil Gaiman, Dan Simmons, George R.R. Martin, and others take up the challenge to match Vance's vivid worlds and alien cultures as our sun burns red. A wonderful chance to read today's best science fiction and fantasy authors and to rediscover (or discover) a true master of the genre.”
-- John Wenger, Kazoo Books, Kalamazoo, MI
