Short biography
Jack Vance est né en 1916 à San Francisco. Il faillit devenir ingénieur des Mines puis journaliste avant de se tourner vers la littérature à partir de 1945. Depuis il est devenu un auteur très prolifique dont l'œuvre maîtresse est : Le cycle de Tschaï.
Probably no other author in the field of science fiction & fantasy has received as much acclaim and as little analysis. Despite having won a Nebula and two Hugo awards (and an Edgar for his mystery writing), Vance's work has received little critical attention.
