A great sequel to one of my favourite Vance novels. This episode is more concerned with plot and as such is less funny than Araminta Station, which in typical Vancian fashion pokes fun at the social mores of an imagined society and in doing so illuminates the human condition. Of particular interest here is one of Vance's rare female protagonists. While it is tempting to view his approach to gender relations as old fashioned, I think that he shows a real insight into the female condition. At every turn, the pretty Wayness Tamm is threatened by sexual advances and assaults, which she regards as par for the course, and avoids with great aplomb. Depressing, really. I can't help but agree that if ever mankind does scramble off this orb and populates space, the same problems that beset society today will still do so in thousands of years time.

This is a four-star Vance novel, but deserves five stars in comparison with everyone else.

The second book in the Cadwal Chronicles trilogy. For the first time the narrative moves from Glawen Clattuc, the main protagonist and classic Jack Vance "Everyman" character, to his inamorata, Wayness Tamm, as she travels off-world to Earth in search of Conservancy documents.

With a more swiftly-moving plot than the first novel, "Ecce and Old Earth" captures the growing urgency of the situation on Cadwal, and politics begins to be a more important aspect in Glawen Clattuc's young and relatively innocent life.

Although I liked this book very much I did not find it anywhere near as gripping as Araminta Station, the previous book in the series.

classic sci-fi at it's best.
Jack Vance is not to everyone’s taste, But i find them enjoyable and light reading.
I read all three of the series years ago and still have the original hardbacks.

This is the book between "Araminta Station" & "Throy ", a saga of space travel, family feuds and the fate of a planet.
