Portrait of Jack Vance.
Frontispiece etching of VIE volume #44: 'Wild Thyme
and Violets, Other Unpublished Works, and Addenda'
The Vance Integral Edition project, successfully concluded in 2006, gathered
and restored the work of Jack Vance in a 44 volume edition. The
all-volunteer project broke new ground in textual restoration methodology
and internet use, coordinating the efforts of hundreds of volunteers
world-wide. During the years of its activity the project generated a
multitude of Vance related information and resources; the mission of
Foreverness is to preserve and perpetuate the project's achievements by
making these resources accessible.
