Quote of the Week


            “The natural form of the hallways and chambers seemed to be roughly hexagonal, or sometimes curved, like a vast snail shell; or sometimes complex and unfolding, like a fern.  An elaborate machinery extruded and snapped tightly into place. A mesh of bars and wires and gears and metal teeth.  The Mountain, whatever it was, was slowly sloughing off the shabby domestic façade Shay-the-first-and-eldest had hung on it.  An unearthly light shone from behind the walls.  Arjun had a sense of some impossible vision battering against the form of the machine.  The masks were coming off.  The bars were breaking and the prisoners were ready to be released.  He awaited the revelation.”
