Description
How do you catch a murderer when everyone wears a mask? Originally published in Galaxy Science Fiction, Hugo, Nebula, Edgar, and World Fantasy Award winner Jack Vance's 1961 tale The Moon Moth is brilliantly adapted in this graphic novel by Humayoun Ibrahim. Edwer Thissell, the new counsel from Earth to the planet Sirene, is having trouble adjusting to the local culture. The natives wear elaborate masks corresponding to their social status and mood, and communicate in song using a number of variously appropriate musical instruments. But soon Thissell, compelled to wear a low-status Moon Moth mask, finds he must unmask a killer—without committing any of a number of fatal taboos.

"Honored as one of science fiction's Grand Masters, Vance demonstrates his rich vocabulary and skill at depicting unfamiliar cultures in this classic SF story from the 1960s."—Publishers Weekly
