I just finished reading There Are Doors.  I found it to be pretty mundane
until experiencing the usual Wolfean epiphany late, which of course makes me
want to reread the whole thing again to figure out what really was going on.

I haven't read Vance; it's on my list as well.

Subject: (urth) Jack Vance or There are Doors?

Hello, all.  I was looking for any opinions here, I am just about to finish
RTTW, and was looking next either to read Jack Vance's Tales of the Dying
Earth or Wolfe's There are Doors.  I'm intrigued as to the Vance work to
see how it influenced the Urth novels, but have never read any Vance
before.  I also have never read any Wolfe other than the Urth/LS/SS cycle,
so don't know what to expect from There are Doors.  Any recommendations or
views on these books from the list?

p.s. As to Vironese signoff names I'm leaning towards Shell, which I think
would make me a male Chem if I'm not mistaken.  My last name, Cilluffo, is
Sicilian and has no direct translation but I've been told is similar to and
may be a derivation of the Greek word for shell (although I know no Greek,
it is all Greek to me as they say!).  I hope this isn't taken?
