“First there was the City, never night. Tin and reflective,

 

     walls of

           ANTISEPTIC METAL like an

                                Immense                         Autoclave.

 

 

                                           Pure and dust-free, so SILENT that even the whirling

 

Innards of its heart and mind were

sheathed from notice.”

 

 

Harlan Ellison, “The Prowler in the City at the Edge of the World”
