A couple of good Magnus Ridolph short stories then an eclectic mix of Vance stories. Well worth a read for Vance fans or would-be Vance fans. The Moon Moth itself was quirky with a good twist.

Jack Vance's "The moon moth" is one of the most intriguing stories I have read. Published in the Aug. 1961 Galaxy magazine, it is really a social psychology or social anthropology essay. It takes place on Sirene, where the society has decreed that every one must wear a mask. A naked face is considered obscene. The mask must depict the type of person the wearer wishes to be recognized as. However, there are dire penalties for wearing a mask above one's achievements. The rank of the mask must be earned through accomplishment.
Into this planet comes our main character to track down a criminal.
Let your imagination soar from there. A masterpiece by Mr. Vance.
