Ten of the Best Towers
'Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake Peake's Gormenghast is dominated by the Tower of Flints. "This tower, patched unevenly with black ivy, arose like a mutilated finger from among the fists of knuckled masonry and pointed blasphemously at heaven. At night the owls made of it an echoing throat; by day it stood voiceless and cast its long shadow." Bad things will happen in it.'
