The redoubtable Smut Clyde, a hero of bravery, has reminded us that today is the annual "Talk Like a Jack Vance Character Day". Let all indulge in a salmagundi of rococo repartee so as to avoid the obloquy of individuals of taste and distinction.
I have been remiss, a mooncalf and a villein, in not posting about Jack Vance since that worthy made his transition to an empyrean realm. I shall endeavor to correct such deficiencies in future.
Getting back to the prosaic everyday tongue for a moment, I have to note that spellcheck really doesn't dig the Vancian linguistic mode- infernal machine!
