The Star King by Jack VanceThe Star King is the opening novel of a five book series known as the Demon Princes which tell the story of Kirth Gersen as he attempts to take revenge upon the five criminals who slaughtered his family when he was a child Admittedly the plot of the series sounds a little clich d and even the title of the series itself probably gives the wrong impression of what lies beneath the covers Make no mistake this is golden era space opera that was serialised by Galaxy Science Fiction magazine but it soon becomes apparent that there is much to this book that meets the eye Those who choose not to judge this book by its cover will be greatly rewarded by something that was uite uniue to similar works in the genre at the time wrote by a skilful inventive and confident voiceMore time passed The ship traversed new regions and regions after regions where no man had passed but one Lugo Teehalt To all sides hung stars by the thousand and the million streaming swarming flowing glaring glittering shifting silently one across the other and the other across another still worlds of infinite variety populated by who knows whom each drawing the eye fixing the imagination evoking wonder each world an urge a temptation a mystery each a promise of unseen sights unknown knowledge unsensed beautyThis is the first of Vance s multi book series a trend that he leaned and towards as his career progressed and it presents the opportunity for Vance to really develop his vision of the future the worlds of The Oikumene and The Beyond which later blossomed into the Gaean Reach which is used throughout his career in most of his future works The Oikumene is a set of colonised planets and solar systems which are centrally governed and policed and are generally regarded as safe Travel between these world is trivial for anyone and this has bred a cosmopolitan forward thinking and peaceful population Outside of this comfortable existence however there are many unpoliced planets known as The Beyond which are deemed unsafe and are an easy hide out for criminals of varying degrees of evil What a paradox what a fearful reproach when the distinction of a few hundred miles nay as many feet or even inches can transform heinous crime to simple unualified circumstance Kirth Gersen the series main protagonist has been trained from a young age by his grandfather with the necessary skills to hunt down and kill the men who were responsible for the deaths of his family The story begins at Smade s Tavern on Smade s Planet a wonderfully simple yet memorable setting which sits somewhere between the safety of the controlled Oikumene and the lawless Beyond It is here that Kirth Gersen meets Lugo Teehalt a troubled Locator someone who is commissioned to trawl through unknown intergalactic space in search of new worlds Here Teehalt sombrely tells Gersen that he has found out to his utter dismay that the person sponsoring him to find new worlds is Attel Malagate also known as Malagate the Woe one of the so called Demon Princes that Gersen is searching for Teehalt has found a world which is beautiful beyond description but his heart is torn because he does not want this world to fall into the hands of Malagate the WoeTeehalt smiled nodded slowly But still there s always excitement The star gleams you notice a circlet of planets you ask yourself will it be now And time after time the smoke and ammonia the weird crystals the winds of monoxide the rains of acid But you go on and on and on Perhaps in the region ahead the elements coalesce into nobler forms Of course it s the same slime and black trap and methane snow And then suddenly there it is Utter beauty From the events at Smade s Tavern the story takes on the form of a mystery amongst the stars as Gersen begins to piece together evidence to lead him closer and closer to the identity of Attel Malagate This serves as a means for Vance to take us on a tour of several worlds of The Oikumene as the plot unwinds One of the interesting peoples mentioned in the book and to which the book is named after are the Star Kings These are a race of people who on the surface appear to be human but are actually a race that has evolved to compete with humans by mimicking their physical appearanceOne of the truly great aspects of The Star King and all the books in the series for that matter are the footnotes at the start of each chapter which are not only a real pleasure to read but they also flesh out the various peoples and places that are relevant to the story in an amusing and witty way which is just as enjoyable to read as the story itself For exampleDeeming the unsubstantiated dogma of a localized religious cult to be an undignified and unsuitable base on which to erect the chronology of galactic man the members of this convention hereby declare that time shall now be reckoned from year 2000 AD Old System which becomes the year 0 The revolution of Earth about Sol remains the standard annual unitThere is an interesting cast of characters in The Star King from poor Pallis Atwrode the seemingly obligatory love interest of Vance s stories who is thrust into danger for just being associated with Kirth to Hildemar Dasce the Beauty and Robin Rampold who have an unusual and complicated relationship displaying symptoms of both Stockholm Syndrome and pure hatred for one another One of Vance s greatest strengths is his wonderful descriptions of these charactersKagge Kelle was a small compact man with a large solid well arranged head His skin was only faintly dyed to a waxy bisue pallor he wore a severe costume of dark brown and purple His eyes were clear and remote his nose short and blunt his mouth prim held firmly as if in compensation for its over fullnessThe Star King is a fantastic book written with confidence and flare and it sets the tone for the following books in the series Highly recommended as starting point for those unacuainted with Vance s works
