Lo spazio esterno e interno hanno misteriose corrispondenze, per questo non si può mandare le astronavi allo sbaraglio senza un minimo di advice (consiglio) e meglio ancora counseling (assistenza specializzata). Per questo sono stati creati i simulacri, perfette copie di luminari che aiuteranno gli equipaggi a superare i conflitti dei viaggi "dove nessuno è mai stato prima". Ma a chi appartengono le personalità dei nuovi androidi-consiglieri? A umoristi come Mark Twain, a poetesse come Emily Dickinson, per alleviare lo stress del viaggio nel vuoto con la saggezza della civiltà. Questo per quanto riguarda i primi modelli: in seguito ci sarà bisogno di ben altro e si capirà che quando le difficoltà dello spazio incalzano, quando si rischia di sfiorare la nevrosi, bisogna richiamare dalla morte il più qualificato di tutti, lo stesso Sigmund Freud. Peccato che qualcuno, a bordo della prossima astronave, lo abbia già ribattezzato dottor "Frode"...

Big Planet is Jack Vance's first major sf novel, and in the words of the Encyclopedia of SF, "provided an sf model for the planetary romance which has been of significant use for forty years". The huge world of the title is home to a range of colourfully detailed and imaginative human societies, which Vance explores with the zest and humour which are hallmarks of his work. All Jack Vance titles in the SFGateway use the author's preferred texts, as restored for the Vance Integral Edition (VIE), an extensive project masterminded by an international online community of Vance's admirers. In general, we also use the VIE titles, and have adopted the arrangement of short story collections to eliminate overlaps. Big Planet was cut almost in half for its first publication, but sadly the excised pages are lost.

On Big Planet lies the Tinsitala Steppe and the great Vissel River, navigated by showboats bringing entertainment and spectacle to far-flung, idiosyncratic communities ashore. Canny ship-masters press relentlessly for advantage among quirky and boisterous audiences; competition is fierce. The stage is set for poignant mishap. The king of a wealthy up-river realm plans a great contest among showboats. Lured by the boon, Apollon Zamp sails into unknown regions, accompanied by the enchanting but enigmatic Damsel Blanche-Aster, and her suitor Throdorus Gassoon. Meanwhile arch-rival Garth Ashgale plots Zamp's downfall. Adventure, betrayal, high and low art, tragedy and farce ensue, in the inimitable style of Jack Vance. The Magnificent Showboats of the Lower Vissel River, Lune XXIII South, Big Planet is Volume 5 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

On a far future Earth, mankind's achievements are immense: artificially intelligent robots, genetically uplifted animals, interplanetary travel, genetic modification of the human form itself. But nothing comes without a cost. Humanity is tired, its vigour all but gone. Society is breaking down into smaller communities, dispersing into the countryside and abandoning the great cities of the world. As the human race dwindles and declines, which of its great creations will inherit the Earth? And which will claim the stars?

NATURE'S MISLEAD MADHOUSE! Beneath dense gray clouds through which no sun shone lay a forgotten planet. It was a nightmare world of grotesque and terrifying animal-plant life. Gigantic beetles, spiders, bugs and ants filled the putrid, musty earth-ready to kill and devour anything in sight. There were men amidst this horror-men who cringed and ran from the ravening monsters and huddled in the mushroom forests at night. Burl was one of these creatures. But one day inspiration hit Burl. He would find a weapon-he would fight back. And with this idea the first step was taken in man's most desperate flight for freedom in this most horrible of all worlds. But it was only a first step.
