I watched the sky burn as the Fire Child danced, I stood alone in the ruins of Zurich and slew the Allroc in single combat, and I led a cohort of vorpal dragoons as we punched holes through time itself which will out last the heat death of the universe. But nothing compares to the sight of a vampire drinking itself.
- Thag McLarg i/Turquoise
- Fourth book in the series of spin off novels The Revenge Of Xanatos.
- Notable for using over 100 viewpoint characters.
- Attempting to tell who was the victor here is rather difficult from an epistemological standpoint as:
- Aggregated, the Al Gores clearly came out on top.
- Taken individually, Lord Bl?w 8/Crimson was clearly victorious.
- It is unclear and contradictory whether the Thag McLargs' goals where anything beyond securing metallurgy and agriculture for Cro-Magnons in which case he was either an abject failure or a smashing success.
- All of the incicents mentioned by Thag McLarg i/Turquoise happen in latter novels.
