↑God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 11: The Storm Breaks" — " 'I'm part of a delegation of farmers from the Benar Confederation, come up river to petition all the appropriate gods for rain. Damn waste of time, I say, but there you are. We must have it before Winter's Eve or the wheat crop will fail, and that will mean famine throughout the Eastern Lands. I hear that this Gurgle of yours is a rain god. What d'you charge for extra prayers?' "
↑Bound in Blood, "Chapter XI: Equinox", II — "The Earth Wife seemed to be packing up her map—why, Jame had no idea. She winced as Gorbel scrabbled to his feet, defacing large tracts of the Ben-ar Confederation."
