Frontispiece

AND THESE TWO SPED WESTWARD IN THE GLORY OF A DEPARTED SUNSET

THEN JURGEN KNEW WITH WHOM HE TALKED
JURGEN'S SWORD WAS TWISTED FROM HIS HAND, AND SENT FLASHING OVER THE BALUSTRADE
UPON THE MIDDLE CHEST SAT A WOMAN
ESCAPE FROM THE TROLL KING
JURGEN BOWED AS GRACEFULLY AS WAS POSSIBLE IN HIS CIRCUMSTANCES
SO JURGEN SAT WITH ANAÏTIS
AND THEY ALL SLEPT
AND JURGEN CIVILLY BADE HIS FATHER GOOD-DAY
JURGEN SPENT THIS NIGHT AT THE BLACK HOUSE OF BARATHUM
THUS IT CAME ABOUT THAT JURGEN CLAMBERED MERRILY FROM HELL TO HEAVEN
EVERY MOVEMENT THAT WAS MADE BY JURGEN THE SHADOW PARODIED
"AND SO FAREWELL TO YOU, QUEEN HELEN"
