These are tales from cities in which life is lived under threat of great disaster. Dona Quixote's reality, that of a modern city, is built up out of a series of portraits centering on the mysterious main character, whose presence is like a flame, drawing the dispossessed of the city to her.
Gold of Ophir takes a more mythic approach to the city.
