Book details About the author

The Houses of Iszm is a science fiction novel by Jack Vance.

HOUSES OF ISZM-Jack Vance. The Iszic have been growing some wicked pod homes with security, pipes, and furniture included for 200,000 years. The secret and origin of growing these homes are very guarded because this is what keeps the planet in buisness.

A botonist named Farr shows up on Iszm and he is highly suspected of someone who will steal some female seeds to create his own monopoly somewhere. He is followed around by the police and watched at every move with a device put in his shoulder. Witnessing a crime close up he is thought to be suspect to trying to steal some female (prized) house seeds and there the fun gets really rolling. Vance makes most of his characters out of good mud and keeps them in mystery with the reader for most of his books. This who dunnit is great fun so look for it.
