Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse
Part IV: Fuller's Soap


Narrator:Southport, Dock Two, Bay Sixteen. . .
Kevyn:See, Lieutenant? Antimatter is only about fifty-percent efficient. Half of the energy from annihilation is released in the form of neutrinos, which don't significantly interact with matter.
Pibald:If you want to use "inefficiency" to try to talk me out of a pair of antimatter epaulets. . .
Pibald:. . .you shouldn't be trying to explain things in a room where an antimatter grenade vaporized everything.
Kevyn:Inefficient and dangerous.
