The Nearest Book (Meme) II

I haven't done this particular meme in over a year. So here it is again...

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

The book in question is Jack Vance's Tales of the Dying Earth, specifically the first novel contained therein, The Dying Earth, and the story "Guyal of Sfere".
