It is similar in some ways isn't it? I love the ending to the Quarryman though which is what makes the difference to me and gets me thinking Emperor and learning what power is isn't. It's a wonderful story for oral telling without a script and can lead to some very interesting discussions (with a class of children). Sometimes I have stuck an Emperor in after the King, and the wind after the cloud to blow the clouds away. In another life I would like to have been a storyteller.
