    The Augmented Agent MOBI Ó The Augmented Kindle - augmented pdf, agent kindle, The Augmented epub, The Augmented Agent PDFI read the intro andBasically it was a campaign for Vance heroes as regular fellas running around and doing incredible things to the environment they are written into with wits and brains rarely employed beforeVance takes all kinds usually not the genetically perfected sexless mastermensch and works them into stories rarely using knuckleheads as main characters There's one Laurel and Hardy type story in here Three Legged Joe that he has some bumble freindly fukups learning about 3 legged Joe on a remote ore siteThat story wasn't very good The rest of the book is old care

    The Augmented Agent MOBI Ó The Augmented Kindle - augmented pdf, agent kindle, The Augmented epub, The Augmented Agent PDFThe Augmented Agent and Other Stories is a 1986 collection of eight stories with an introduction One of the stories included is a novelette titled The Augmented Agent There are also four other novelettes and three short stories The eight stories were originally published between 1951 and 1967 I had only encountered two of the eight stories in any of my other nine collections of Vance's shorter works Although none of my very favorite Vance short works are here it is still a strong collection not to be missed by Vance fans or any readers who appreciate very well written short stories and novelettes I'm not fond of most science fiction short stories myself but r

    The Augmented Agent MOBI Ó The Augmented Kindle - augmented pdf, agent kindle, The Augmented epub, The Augmented Agent PDFI'll start with a disclaimer Jack Vance is one of my favorite fiction authors so he's an easy sell However this collection is a great example of his skill at weaving evocative language and picaresque situations into highly entertaining short stories His characters are amusing and charismatic and like most Vance works plot is incidental almost accidental Probably a good introduction for someone curious to try him the stories are short and so it won't take too long to make up your mind about him This is definitely a must have for the serious Vance fan as I'm not sure these have been republished recently aside from the Integral Edition which is too pricey for many
