Book 8: The Sharp End of the Stick
Part IV: Do You Mind if I Rewind?


Commodore Shufgar:So. . . You offer me a choice between surrender, and death in a flash of light and heat.
Captain Tagon:Pretty much

If you surrender, we will turn you over ot the authorities at Kehlmer.

Commodore Shufgar:Yes. . . Where I will be summarily executed in accordance with the Great Tradition of Ancient Chapel Est'll.
Captain Tagon:Maybe so, but at least that way you'll get a last meal.
Commodore Shufgar:I will be the last meal, Captain.
Captain Tagon:Ah, those quaint, local traditions.
