Lazy Blog Post - Jack Vance's Planet of Adventure

This is one of those greatest of tragedies - a bunch of books that have sat on my shelf for years, but I've only recently gotten around to reading them. I could have read these ten times over by now, they're that good! For some reason, I had the impression these were pretty straight sci-fi works, but they are much more firmly planted in the Sword & Planet genre.

I'm glad I finally got around to them.

If you haven't read these yet, be sure to check them out ASAP. There are plentiful editions to be found cheap in used books stores (just look for the yellow DAWsf spines!) or omnibus editions still in print at your local "big" chain book seller.

Pan-Dimensional Vending Machine

So apparently there's this vending machine in a back alley in Japan.It's contents are not visible, and there's no list of contents, you just put in your 500 yen (about $.50 USD), and something pops out.

It starts with normal drinks and snacks, but gets weirder as you go.

Details of the vending machine are here.

And some of the interesting stuff it vends here.

Something like this would be great for your weird sorcery/science campaign!
