Black Brillion

If you like quirky, funny, and sardonic speculative fiction, in the manner of Jack Vance, without all the gadgets and rocketships, I highly recommend Black Brillion by Matthew Hughes. His prior titles, Fools Errant and Fool Me Twice were in a lighter vein, more comedic. This latest book is meatier. It takes place in an unspecified far future (the Penultimate Eon, we're told...) when the Sun has gone orange and everything that can happen already has, many times before. In a single word, marvelous.
