You've missed one already--what are you trying to do, cover for
Severian? <g>

One of Greg Feeley's list of "Severian's lies" is in chapter four,
when Valeria mentions the Tower of Torment "where all who enter die
in agony."

Quote Severian: "I told her that, at least, was a fable."

Then again, Feeley was flexible enough to note that the lie was based
on the technicallity that the torturers themselves entered (and
exited) on a daily basis without dying in agony.  FWIW!
