Book 4: The Blackness Between — Part I: Needle in a Haystack


Schlock: Hey, Massey. Legs here is wondering about the story rights stuff in her contract.
Massey: Well, Corporal... When you enlisted with tagon's toughs you signed away your likeness and story rights for a small slice of existing programme royalties.If the schlock mercenary show continues to do well, and if you company stays about this size, your royalty bonus will boost your pay by about one-and-a-half percent.
Legs: Help me with the math here. I've only got three toes to count with unless I sit down.
Massey: Um... Let's just say that you won't need to sit down to count your royalty bonus.
Schlock: And that's still ten times what the average screen-writer makes.
