From the Publisher:
A classic science fiction tale finds new life in this graphic novel adaptation.

A fascinating blend of murder mystery and high-concept science fiction, The Moon Moth has long been hailed as one of Jack Vance's greatest works. And now this intricately crafted tale is available in glorious full color as a new graphic novel.

Edwer Thissell, the new consul from Earth to the planet Sirene, is having all kinds of trouble adjusting to the local culture. The Sirenese cover their faces with exquisitely crafted masks that indicate their social status. Thissell, a bumbling foreigner, wears a mask of very low status: the Moon Moth.

Shortly after Thissell arrives on Sirene, he finds himself embroiled in a an unsolved murder case made all the more mysterious by the fact that since everyone must always wear a mask, you can never be sure who you're dealing with.
Author Bio
Jack Vance
American science fiction and fantasy author Jack Vance has won nearly every award possible for a writer in his genre--from the Nebula to the Edgar, the Hugo to the World Fantasy Award; the Science Fiction Writers of America have named him a Grand Master. Vance's career has spanned over six decades, and as such his writings are perhaps more varied than many authors laden with the SF/Fantasy label. The New York Times as called him "one of American literature's most distinctive and undervalued voices," and his fans are vigorous in their praises. | |Jack Vance was born in 1928 in San Francisco, but after his parents divorced, his mother relocated with her children to a more rural area along the Sacramento River. Vance attended the University of California, Berkeley. He took six years to complete a degree, bouncing between studies in English, physics, and engineering. After fudging an eye exam, Vance served in the Merchant Marines during World War II, but weak eyesight has plagued him throughout his life, and he was diagnosed as legally blind in 1980. Vance has lived for years with his family in Oakland, California.
