To Live Forever by Jack Vance

A book dealing with some of my favorite topics, an interesting antihero, nice pacing, the sci-fi parts aged quite well - I've enjoyed this book a lot.

One thing that's funny in retrospect was the medical optimism. Understandable, since it was written in the fifties. But the 20th century definitely isn't remembered as the one where we defeated disease.
