There was planning involved, and precise calculation. ” “What of the ‘wonderful joke’ of the letter? ” “Impossible to say. ” Kelse brought Elvo Glissam forward and performed an introduction. ” Dm. Stenbaren laughed. “Forty years ago I remember a ‘Society for Uaian Justice’, ten years later a ‘League Against the Land-looters’, and sometime afterward a group which simply called itself ‘Apotheosis’.
Two hundred family friends, relatives and folk from neighboring domains came to pay their last respects to Uther Madduc. html (47 of 132) [1/11/2005 11:52:19 PM] THEGRAYPRINCE Elvo Glissam watched in fascination, marveling at the conduct of these folk so different from himself.

Even Schaine seemed rather more direct than he might have preferred, leaving small scope for teasing or flirtation or any of the subtle games which made urban society so amusing.

Kelse noticed and protested, but Elvo Glissam said: “This is just simple common sense. ” Gerd Jemasze said, “Glissam’s right, Kelse. ” Kelse said no more; the group set forth and an hour later reached the base of the South Rim. By a dry gulch they ascended five hundred feet, then toiled another hundred feet up a face of rotting conglomerate and finally stood at the lip.
