A prominent character in Jack Vance
's Demon Princes series, Navarath
is a mad poet whose works are very interesting in and of themselves. The following is an example of such sayings which characterizes Jack Vance's writing style: "Not now, not tomorrow, not in the total scope of the future nor anytime thereafter do I wish to make your acquaintance. Be off with you! You have the face of a man that brings ill news; a ganshing blacktooth grin. These matters are clear to me: you are fey! I want nothing of you. Go away."
