    Summary

    The sea is glimmering, a pale haze rising above the waves, and it feels as if a fine veil of precious moire silk is thrown over the whole world. And in this world, Doghead is all alone, trapped aboard his ship, trapped inside his head, vicious, wicked thoughts dancing in his head, a furious fugue of rage and regret. And through it all, an old song haunts him, as alien and intrusive as the savage guilt that has engulfed him.

    In the sea there stands a tower,
    in the tower there's a window,
    in the window there's a girl
    who loves the seamen.

    Summary

    So the north wind howls and repeats its plea, and the people of the valley still curl up around each other, all limbs and trust and fragile warmth like a bright streak in the bleak and terrifying cold.
