I must admit to you, dear readers, that this “Girl of Talislanta” is pure fabrication. Eerduz came to me, telling me of a fantastical dream. In this dream he was in the Northern Wastes and saw a giant woman composed of animate ice. Of course, we of Zandu have heard of the dreaded Ice Giants from our Jaka friends to the north, but from all reports, they are genderless creatures. I had not the heart to tell this to Eerduz, so enthused he was by this vision.
FOlLY. thE GIANTESS is REAL. —EeRDuz
