Title: The Dragon Masters Title Record # 11826
Author: Jack Vance
Date: 1962-08-00
Type: SHORTFICTION
Length: novella
Webpages: Wikipedia-EN
Language: English
Note: This short novel was first published in Galaxy, August 1962, and the first book publication was as half of an Ace Double in 1963. According to the Vance Integral Edition (http://www.integralarchive.org/essay-alun.htm), the magazine version is essentially the same as the Ace version, although "the Galaxy version is heavily edited for punctuation and sentence and paragraph breaks, whereas Ace retained more of the Vancian punctuation but were more willing to make arbitrary word changes."
