''the prehistoric Magic Goes Away sequence, with its premise that the mana/manna which fuels magic is an exhaustible natural resource: a wasteful spell designed to squander mana will drain all magic in the vicinity, destroying even ''invincible'' demons. Thinning is thus inevitable; even the spells which hold off the tectonic instability of Atlantis must fade. In The Magic Goes Away (1978) the moon is considered as an outside source of mana, the Midgard serpent proves to have degenerated into a still world-circling but barely alive mountain range, and Earth's last major mana-focus is an uncontrollable god who threatens the end of the world''. (David Langford/Encyclopedia of Fantasy). A far cry from Ringworld!
