If they once saw what I saw, or even caught a glimpse of a single bugger, the fear would spread, each one's terror would feed on everyone else's dread, until— until something.
Если бы они хоть раз увидали то, что видел я, если бы они заметили хотя бы одного жукера — тот час же началась бы паника. Ужас каждого из них подпитывал бы страхом остальных, вплоть до… вплоть до того, что бы произошло.

Then she took his arm, went out into the corridor, and almost cried out aloud. At the very door of the box Doenhof sprang up like some apparition; while behind his back she got a glimpse of the figure of the Wiesbaden critic.
Потом она взяла его под руку, вышла в коридор - и чуть не вскрикнула: у самой двери ложи, как некое привидение, торчал Донгоф; а из-за его спины выглядывала паскудная фигура висбаденского критика.

He used to wait by his window for a glimpse in the soft evening of Carolyn undressing for bed, across the little air space.
Тихим вечером, притаившись у раскрытого окна, он ждал, чтобы подсмотреть украдкой, как Кэролин будет раздеваться, — их разделяло всего несколько футов неподвижного воздуха.

He caught one last glimpse of the Lord Ciaran, fighting to hold one of the creatures long enough to mount it, and then a dozen striving bodies surged around him and hid him and he was gone.
Краем глаза он увидел, что после долгой борьбы Сиаран сумел оседлать одно из животных, но тут на него налетел клубок катящихся тел и увлек за собой.

Затем показались длинная ультрамариновая аллея, идущая вдоль одного из внутренних каналов, и пристань. Иногда мелькала гигантская, кишащая селенитами шахта какого-нибудь вертикального ствола.
