Lyonesse - 1: A Vancian Novel?
First off, welcome to all to 2019, and welcome as well to the Tabletop Roleplayer's Book Club to anyone who is just joining us for the first time to discuss Lyonesse by Jack Vance.
To anyone who is new to the club, we typically handle discussion by posing a number of questions. I'll lead us off with a few, but if you find you have a specific topic you'd like to discuss in relation to our book that hasn't been addressed elsewhere, then please feel free to post a new topic and introduce it.
1: The Vancian Novel
Have you read Vance before? In what ways is Lyonesse similar to other Vance novels? How is it different? If Vancian magic is 'cast and forget', what is a Vancian novel?
