Julian Mann, the tough ingesting, preening, and sexually provocative big name of the television sitcome Richard the Nerd, feels stuck at the horns of a limitation: should still he be focusing on his profession, that is at the slide after an unseemly bout of fisticuffs on the BAFTA awards; or following his baser instincts and bedding each younger lady in sight?
His dual goals of comedian immortality and a penthouse flat filled with booze and younger types appear to be annoyed through his spouse and youngsters; via Tom, his wife's ally from college days, a pretentious 'National Theatre Player' who seems to be competing with Julian at the small sreen and within the bed room; by way of the tax guy, who's chasing him for sixty thousand kilos; and by way of Lillith, a psychotic fan, and member of an odd Herculean cult whose eight-year cycle of loss of life and regeneration may augur Julian's coming near near nemesis. ..

He stood back with Emmis, calling advice. " When everything was securely stowed and Lar was distributing the promised coins, the teamster climbed back to his place and looked down at Lar and Emmis. "There's room for one up here. " Lar looked up from his dwindling handful of money at Emmis, who immediately said, "I'll ride in back. " "But you're the one who knows where we're going," Lar pointed out.
And the girl said Lar's luggage was safe inside the room. Lar was probably real after all, and he had been worrying about nothing. The ambassador had surely just gone out on an errand of some sort, perhaps to buy a few things in Shiphaven Market. Not that Emmis had seen him when he had passed through the market a few minutes before. " he asked. She shook her head. "No. " For a moment Emmis stood silently staring at her, trying to think of something useful to ask her, but nothing came to mind. The girl stared back.
It wasn't any great secret in Ethshar, and if the news had never reached Ashthasa – well, in that case they clearly didn't have any warlocks there, so she didn't need to know. But Emmis now had an idea what Lar's secret mission might be. If the Empire of Vond had been created by a warlock, and that warlock was gone, maybe the ambassador was here looking for a new warlock. There were certainly plenty of them in the city, and any who had reached the nightmare threshold, the point when the Calling had started to trouble their dreams but had not yet affected them when they were awake, would probably be very interested in a trip to the southern edge of the World.
