"Moonglow was rather anxious about this. She didn't relish the prospect of being apprehended by an irate landlord. Moonglow had long black hair, soft pretty features, a firm belief in astrology, a kind nature and no experience of irate landlords. She was certain that if she encountered one, she'd find it very awkward."
"So Kalix had been registered with a doctor in Scotland, and through this she had been referred to a psychiatrist who had prescribed diazepam for her anxiety. Kalix disliked her psychiatrist but she liked the diazepam."
"'The plumber?' said Malveria, puzzled. She had little idea of what life in this world was really like.

The was a list of genres: traditional doom, atmospheric doom, gothic doom, metal doom, progressive doom, death doom, suicidal doom, funeral doom and various others. A wide choice. Daniel could appreciate the subtleties involved."
"You would be surprised at the trouble this can cause in the human world, with the difficoulties involved in the postal services.'
'Postal services?' said Xakthan.
'A primitive method for transporting goods. Very often it leads to chaos.'"
