It’s ‘Talk like Jack Vance Week’ all this week at Goodman Games in honor of DCC Dying Earth! As our kickstarter approaches its final week we’re kicking things into linguistic overdrive with a week-long celebration of the stylishly unique language of Jack Vance.
Do not fret at the seeming out of sortness of the language employed sitewide at Goodman Games this week. No, we did not over-clamp our collective Lobes of Subliminal Configuration, neither have we been victimized by a parasitic interloper of far Achernar. Instead, we have adopted the temporary proposition of speaking in a near-approximation of the supple syntactical conjoinings of the master of convolving diction, Jack Vance. No bombast this, nor the waffling jejune preciosities of the over-texted poseur or logorrheically expatiate academe, but only the strong straight stuff of Vance.
So engoggle your purple lenses, rakishly angle your most roguish of hats, and accompany us for a weeklong phraseological frolic through the fertile fields of clausal cleverness that is the particularly exacting province of that scribe nonpareil, Jack Vance.
