Jack Vance is a Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America Grand Master, and winner of numerous sci-fi and fantasy awards spanning a 60-year career. His unparalleled knack for coining words is recognized among the traits which delight his readership. In 1992, Daniel Temianka compiled Vances neologisms to date and published these in the Underwood-Miller first edition of The Jack Vance Lexicon, from Ahulph to Zipangote. The Lexicon had limited distribution and has become something of a Holy Grail for Vance collectors, rare copies changing hands only occasionally, for tidy sums. After the first Lexicon Jack Vance wrote three major novels and an autobiography. In this second edition, now titled The Jack Vance Lexicon, from Abiloid to Zygage, Dan Temianka and a host of tireless Vance scholars close the work with another 160 entries, revising and re-indexing the 1800 items from the first edition. The Lexicon is the ultimate Jack Vance readers companion, available now conveniently to all as a Spatterlight ebook.
