Why Cold Tonnage?
"... the dragon Griaule, a vast mile-long beast who had been struck immobile yet not lifeless by a wizard's spell, and who ruled over the Carbonales Valley, controlling in every detail the lives of the inhabitants, making known his will by the ineffable radiations emanating from the cold tonnage of his brain."  Lucius Shepard, from "The Scalehunter's Beautiful Daughter", 1988
