Signature Series

The Spatterlight Press Signature Series

Spatterlight Press presents the Signature Series, an integral Jack Vance edition in 62 deluxe paperbacks. Released in the centenary of the author’s birth, this handsome new collection is based upon the prestigious Vance Integral Edition. Select volumes enjoy up-to-date maps, and many are graced with freshly-written forewords contributed by a distinguished group of authors. Each book bears a facsimile of the author’s signature and a previously-unpublished photograph, chosen from family archives for the period the book was written. These unique features will be appreciated by all, from seasoned Vance collector to new reader sampling the spectrum of Vance’s influential work for the first time.

This page will be updated periodically to reflect the volumes that are available, and the online channels through which they may be purchased. Please check back here regularly, or follow us on social media to remain updated with news about forthcoming releases:
