Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part II: Schlocktoberfest 2004


TAGON: I have a small, special operations mission up for grabs.  I need two volunteers, ASAP.

TAGON: It's a deep teraport insertion into an enemy base, with two days of hiding, followed by extraction or elimination of a hostile individual.

Our intel is first-rate on this.  Our gear and training easily outmatches any guards we'll encounter on the base.

ELF: Sir, my schedule says that all week I'm supposed to be in a bikini fighting off amorous cabana boys.

SCHLOCK: Can't do it.  I've got four days of bath to catch up on.

TAGON: Pay is 10x base, plus a 50% live-extraction bonus.

ELF: The perp is already in my bag, Sir.

SCHLOCK: I call shotgun.
