With majestic deliberation the thrashing kragen was
lifted from the water and swung up in the air.
The Blue World, VIE volume 16, page 40


The Vance Integral Edition project began in 1999. Over 300 volunteers, world-wide, worked via the Internet, for 6 years, to create a definitive and complete edition of Vance's work in 44 volumes. A supplemental 45th volume, with the 3 'Ellery Queen' novels, was also published. Approximately 600 book sets were printed for VIE subscribers. Several dozen sets were donated to libraries. VIE texts have been the basis of all subsequent publications and translations. The essays from VIE volume 44, linked below, are post-project overviews. Much project information is also avalable in Cosmopolis and Extant.
