Jack Vance

The Best of Jack VanceThe Best of Jack Vance by Jack Vance

Sail 25
a short story about a voyage into deep outer space. The cadets are headed to mars on a space clipper. The captain Henry Belt is a no nonsense chap, who desires to die in space; so he hands the reign to his cadets to sail on through the outer limits of space.  Will they get home?  The story was a keen observation of Sailors and Captains, and the relationship between the two.   I really enjoyed the story.
