I’ve polished up and expanded the draft of Barbarians of the Beyond, the authorized sequel to Jack Vance’s quintilogy, The Demon Princes.  At just under 58,000 words, its length is within the range of the original five novels, which were written back in the age of short SF paperbacks.

I think it has the feel of a nice, tight, Vancean adventure tale, with some twists and turns and paying proper homage to Vance’s preference for anti-heroes. 

I’ll take another look at it in a few days, then turn it in officially.
