Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse — Part II: Enter the Longshoreman


Frank Hannibal: What are the parts of your job you like the most, Sergeant?
Schlock: My plasma cannons. Using them.
Schlock: Explosions. Close combat. Cutting a wide swath through the enemy.
Frank Hannibal: You like the killing, then.
Schlock: Done right, yeah. Ending a horrible, evil person with superior firepower is very satisfying. It's so much simpler than how society usually tries to do it.
Frank Hannibal: How do you feel about the word "sociopath?"
Schlock: I get mistaken for one all the time.
