Subject: (urth) World-building in short stories

Interesting comments regarding "Semley's Necklace". It
strikes that me that one quite famous novelette--Jack
Vance's "The New Prime"--builds not one world but six,
each in a dense vignette. That story dates from the
Fifties. Vance had the cheek to make contemporary
Earth one of the six, a place no less exotic and
bizarre than the rest.
