That was the interregnum, in fact, the naked moment before the next exfoliation of habits, the time when one wandered doing things randomly. The time without skin, the raw data, the being-in-the-world. Most of the terraria offering passenger transport around the solar system were extremely fast, but even so, trips often took weeks.

But the family resemblance was there. He stared at the next photograph, seemed completely lost in his memories. They wore elaborate hand-knitted jerseys, baggy trousers and caps. The sun must have been in their eyes because they were squinting. These light nights would soon give way to the storms of the autumn equinox. His immediate thought was that Dave Mills must have sneaked in and made off with it.

His back had only been turned a moment. A dark shape at the bottom of the pool, sitting on the tiled floor of the deep end.

Intimacy and Solitude. Neither of us had berths booked and we sat up all night drinking and talking. His hair was thin on top, several long loose strands tapering behind indicating the slipstream of his passage.

One hand was tucked into his trouser pocket, while the other held a rolled newspaper. Mama had plaited it in the hospital, but because of my raging headaches, she did not make the braids tight. They were starting to slip out of the twists, and Father Amadi ran his hand over the loosening braids, in gentle, smoothing motions.

He was looking right into my eyes. His touch was so light I wanted to push my head toward him, to feel the pressure of his hand. I wanted to collapse against him. Wren saw her turn and reach out. A pale bony hand shot through the mist and touched her forehead, and Wren felt the icy fingers of aether flood sharply into her nostrils and mouth, and she fell back to the floor, choking and gasping.

The shadows stretched out around her into the distance in shapeless, formless darkness, and she peered in every direction, seeing nothing. There were no stars overhead and the air hung perfectly still and cold around her. She exhaled and watched her breath curl away from her nose. This foolish ghost story has not had much currency, either. A lady abroad in a Cambridge college at the dead of night.

And of course Mr Frank Oldershaw. My first night for weeks on the solid ground. I slid down by the fire and took a gulp of my tepid, bitter tea. The smoke from the fire stung my eyes. I took the thin cigarette that he held out and Ram lit it for me. I sucked on the roll-up and pulled acrid smoke into my lungs. A man opened the door of the church and came in pushing the pram.

He thought she looked very tired. He thought she was prettier now than she had been when she was young. These were our provisions and a tent, with ammunition, blankets, and presents for the Indians.

In fact, the prairie was his congenial element. Henry Chatillon was of a different stamp. He bought a bottle of Coke and placed it at the foot of my stool before he left. She put the comb down and untangled some ends with her fingers. It felt strange, because Mama had always plaited my hair. But she was already shouting something to Mama Bomboy across the aisle. While she turned my hair into tight cornrows, she chattered nonstop to Mama Bomboy and to Mama Caro, whose voice I heard but whom I could not see because she was a few sheds away.

A brown spiraled shell crawled out from underneath. He landed with a grunt on soft sand, fell to his knees, scrambled up again and began to sprint hard towards the dunes at the side of the house. The chopper descended closer towards the beach, its downdraught whipping up a sandstorm. Then he wondered where Jude was, and hoped he was far away by now.

Above all, she reams of returning to normal, careless, everyday life- the land of the living. Could there be a connection between her real life and the voice in the darkness. She was carrying a tray that held the same cups Papa had always used to drink his tea. I could smell the thyme and curry that clung to her. Even after she had a bath, she still smelled like that. It was only Sisi who had cried in the household, loud sobs that had quickly quieted in the face of our bewildered silence.

I should have taken care of Mama. It sounded like a series of snorts strung together. This time he recognised the piece. Harmonically dissonant and jarring on the ear, it was the kind of music he liked. And Silvia Steiner played it beautifully, as though she really understood it. He walked towards them, paused to listen and peered inside. I kept to the gutter, almost abreast of them, dodging pedestrians who stepped off the kerb to avoid the group, a sick feeling in my stomach.

To live vicariously through her for a short while. I was sure my first thoughts were right as I recalled the television and newspaper pictures of the previous victims, all of whom were smart and successful career people. And he wanted to enjoy what was probably impossible for him, because of his awful facial disfigurement, through them.

Can I ask you some questions about the case. Was the shooter wearing camo gear. He had a long pale face, with a hint of green in its pallor and fine regular features. His starched collar rose almost to his ears and his neck cloth tumbled in a snowy waterfall from his throat.

The fingers on the windowsill moved rhythmically, as though marking time to an inaudible tune. Later he woke with a stiff neck, watched the ocean get closer. The exhibition had been designed as a Bella Sinclair retrospective. The invitation for Fran to show with her had come out of the blue. She hoped that he would say something flattering about her work. Tonight, jittery and exposed, she could use the flattery. Black linen jacket over a black T-shirt, loose black trousers.

It was Bella at her most outrageous. We should find somewhere to put all this stuff. There might have been a misunderstanding.

Just a few days ago, these friends of mine round the corner heard a huge crash in the middle of the night. They went downstairs and exactly the same thing had happened. Someone had kicked the door open and grabbed a bag and a camera.

Penrose watched and his heart began to beat harder as the old cat moved slowly and stiffly through the garden. He found the cat in his sights and pulled the trigger. She told herself sternly that she should feel grateful to him for nearly everything that made life endurable, including the roof over her head. It was as if he could read her mind, her thoughts about himself, even her thoughts about Mr Holdsworth.

You know that I have been concerned about my health. A fire purred somewhere nearby, and boiling water bubbled and steam hissed.

Every board and bolt on the steam carriage had been carefully crafted to maximize the interior space for greater passenger comfort, leaving no clever little compartments for baggage, food, or unwanted stowaways. Then there was more thumping as the guard inspected the carriage, and luggage, and the passengers. Eventually the search ended and the coach rumbled to life again, beginning the long journey up the Royal Road to the Upper City of Orossa.

Within minutes, her entire body was aching and throbbing.
