The Connatic rules the three thousand inhabited planets of the Alastor Cluster from his palace Lusz on the world Numenes. Though his military force can bring considerable might to bear where necessary, the Connatic often wanders among his subjects incognito, intervening to right a wrong, or leaving well enough alone. For a century, the people of Arrabus on the planet Wyst have lived by the Egalistic Manifold, in a society which minimizes toil but guarantees adequate food and shelter to all. Jantiff Ravensroke performs the required thirteen hours of 'drudge' per week, experiencing the frivolity that otherwise characterizes Arrabin existence-but discovers a conspiracy to control the wealth of Arrabus, and threaten the life of the Connatic himself. With unerring insight into human nature, world-builder Jack Vance tells a story of treachery and intrigue, in one of his most controversial works. Wyst is Book II in the Alastor sequence, and Volume 48 of the Spatterlight Press Signature Series. 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 Each book bears a facsimile of the author's signature and a previously-unpublished photograph, chosen from family archives for the period the book was written.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 this author's influential work for the first time. - John Vance II… (mere)

Aardig verhaal. Niets meer of minder dan dat. ( )
  EdwinKort | Oct 18, 2019 |
Eigentlich mehr ein Gesellschaftsroman als ein Science-Fiction. Jantiff Ravensroke beschließt, auf dem Planeten Wyst in Arrabus zu leben. Dort herscht eine egalitäre Geselllschaft. Leider sind die Arrabier dekadent, stehlen und sind unpersönlich. Jantiff fühlt sich immer weniger Wohl auf den Planeten und wird dann sogar in einen Komplott hineingezogen.

Spannender, intelligenter Science-Fiction. ( )
  Karsten3000 | Dec 16, 2016 |
A typical Vance: a charming idea, a lush setting and an impressive vocabulary, but marred somewhat by a straightforward plot, and an over-the-top mystery damsel. It seemed like Vance grew impatient after the section in Balad, because the ending feels extremely rushed. ( )
  Petroglyph | Jul 12, 2016 |
This books is just shy of perfection. An unexpected tale, a sly satire on socialism and leftist thought in general, as well as statist control in general, the tale is marred only by the too-pat deus ex machina ending. And yet . . . I've this feeling that Vance started the book with the ending in mind! As usual with Vance, the prose is magnificent. And the character of Jantik Ravensroke is brilliantly conceived. The comedy at the start, with the Connatic (supreme ruler of that part of the galaxy) interviewing a bunch of politicians and likely criminals, is even funny. ( )

Alastor, ein Kugelhaufen von dreißigtausend Sonnen, unzähligen verglühten Himmelskörpern und einer Vielfalt von Asteroiden und interstellarem Treibgut, befindet sich am inneren Rand der Galaxis, zwischen dem Unseligen Nichts vor und der Nonestikkluft hinter ihm, und dem Gaeanischen Territorium als funkelnder Sternenschleier an einer Seite.
