Book 1: The Tub of Happiness
Meet The Mercenaries


NSB Manager:What do you mean gone?
NSB Roadie:It's just gone. I checked the Vanilla-helix Tanglebanks, dumped the viral core, and there's no trace of it.
NSB Manager:Somebody stole our bread-and-butter? That artificial intelligence is worth billions to us. The New Sync Boys don't exist without it!
NSB Roadie:I don't think it was stolen.
NSB Roadie:I think it uploaded itself to the hypernet. It ran away, probably in shame.
NSB Manager:That ungrateful little virus! Running away from stardom!?!
Thurl:Captain, I believe we caught a virus from the hypernet.
Ennesby:> I'm not a virus!
Ennesby:> I'm a refugee!
Ennesby:> Sanctuary!
Ennesby:> Sanctuary!
Tagon:I think your virus detection software has gone gullible on you.
