I'm terribly sad to finish this book because now there are no more novels about Cugel written by his creator Jack Vance.* I adore Cugel and his conflict with Iucounu the Laughing Magician was a source of great and continual amusement over the past couple weeks. In each chapter Vance creates a wholly realized new culture and Cugel has to quickly adapt, or face the music. He often does both.
*There are novels featuring Cugel written by others, apparently.
