Book 11: Massively Parallel
Prologue: Meanwhile, at the Galactic Core


Petey:I don't expect you to lead this personally. Go to your friends back on Earth or Celeschul. Shop around and hire someone.
Kerchak:I know some guys who would jump at this, yeah. What's the pay?
Petey:Here is a safebox full of anonymized CetiBank chits. Expenses, bonuses, materiel, bribes. . . this should cover all of it. That includes your cut, however much you think that should be.
Kerchak:You just bought yourself a shopping trip. I'll take care of it.
Petey:Start by buying some pants.
