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.
