Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse — Prologue: Drydock


Pibald: Hey there, little guys. I understand a Boomex colony got loose.
Ship-bot: Yes, it did. And even if we could find your explosives, we would not go anywhere near them.
Pibald: You don't need to find them. They'll find you. I'll just put out some bait, and any rogue colonies will attach themselves and wait.
Ship-bot: Oh. That doesn't sound so bad. What's that you're using for bait.
Pibald: Detonators.
Ship-bot: Control, please back me up again. I've got a bad feeling about this.
