Read full description of the books:
How cool was Jack Vance?
Reach through all the Bud Light, and Lite, and grab the last craft beer in the bottom of the cooler. He’s that cool.
First published in 1958, The Miracle Workers can now be found on ebooks and in The Jack Vance Treasury.
Vance describes a world colonized hundreds of years prior by humans on spaceships. A millennia later, only a small percentage of the artifacts are still functioning and the humans populating the world have slipped down into a medieval feudalism and – this is Jack Vance after all – the humans are now telepathic and some of them – Jinxmen – cast spells and hoodoos on each other.
And! And! (This is Jack Vance after all)
The indigenous race of the moss covered planet – The First Folk – who are kind of like farting blobs of foam, have a long standing grudge against the human colonists and are out to kill them all.
Perhaps the most Philip K. Dickian of Vance’s already weird and eclectic bibliography, The Miracle Workers is a gem and if you’re a JV aficionado, you’ll want to read.
