The story of a man who has been placed in suspended animation for 100 years.



I made my difficult way toward the stairs. I glanced from one to another, and met hard, mirthless eyes, and mouths twisted in sneering mockery. Woe to you, accursed city! he screamed, Woe to you in the day of judgment! Woe to your wives and harlots when the judgment comes! It pulled me through the window-gap and I swung far out above the Fortress. A man near me leaped up and craned his neck, looking into the gloom. A tall man with a black beard and a curved sword sheath that clanked on the stones. I recognized in him Mehemet, the Turkish commander. Sanson of the domitable will flamed out. I will not drink! he cried, and flung the cup to the floor. The giant leaped out before his followers. Where is Lembken? he roared.
