http://www.integralarchive.org/ – a website dedicated to all things Jack Vance. Vance is a “writer’s writer” and one of my all time favorites. This group took it upon themselves to publish the definitive edition of Vance’s entire body of work. It was a herculean effort and I am proud to say I own one of the rare, 44-volume sets. If you haven’t discovered Vance, you are in for a treat. Start with The Dying Earth and explore outward from there.
