Cugel's Saga

Cugel's Saga is an episodic fantasy novel by Jack Vance, published by Timescape in 1983, the third book in the Dying Earth series that Vance inaugurated in 1950. It continues the story of its predecessor.

The Internet Speculative Fiction Database calls Cugel's Saga "wice as large and less episodic than Eyes of the Overworld", and catalogs it as a novel rather than a fix-up, but also qualifies that label. "This is marketed as a novel, but there is a table of contents, and some of the parts were previously published (although none are acknowledged thus)."
