The New York Times finally notices Jack Vance... that he's 92 and blind. A development right out of Vance's fiction, which is always more like "real life" than you might suspect at first blush. To say the least.

Carlo Rotella is to be congratulated on an excellent article. Thanks to Brad DeLong for pointing this out.

Thanks for this. The NYT piece is nicely written but not overly showy, it's personal without being self-indulgent, and all at once newcomers to Vance (i.e., people like me) get a sense of his reputation among fans, friends, and critics. Plus we get a sense of Vance's prose style and we get to "meet" Vance himself. What a satisfying read.
