In Cugel's Saga, published 17 years after Eyes of the Overworld, the novel that first featured the scoundrel, Cugel again tests wits with Iucounu and acquires rudimentary powers. Though Vance puts himself in the tradition of popular fantasy writers, one might assume that he had also grown up with Ovid and Herodotus, Homer's Odyssey, Don Quixote, and Candide. The Cugel tales lack some of the scope and pathos of the great adventure yarns, but, in the 21st century, they may be as close as one gets to the celebration of epic human perseverance.

    " This one was not much different from the previous book in the series (The Eyes of the Overworld), but I give it less stars. Cugel is exactly the same as we came to know him in the previous story, I don't like such integrity in my anti-hero. While on the first encounter his terrible character is comically unbelievable - you want to say "no, you don't, Cugel. No, really?" each time he pulls some trick - this time around his consistency is annoying because it doesn't surprise you anymore. "
