“You make it sound very easy, and why not? To you three, the concept of doorways between this world and your world of tack-sees and astin and fottergrafs seems almost as mundane as riding a mule would to me. Or strapping on a sixgun. — У вас все получается очень просто, и действительно, почему нет? Для вас троих идея перемещения из этого мира в ваш мир с его такси, небоскребами и фотографиями выглядит такой же естественной, как для меня – поездка на муле. (ТБ 5)
