"It rose tall, dark and windowless above a sea of ruins.  Those buildings farthest from it still contrived to stand; but the closer they came, the more total their collapse, until those who had once stood beside the temple itself were now reduced to bulwarks of dust piled high against its gleaming flanks."

- P.C. Hodgell, from God Stalk, 1982, chapter 1.
