Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse — Part II: Enter the Longshoreman


Narrator: A little later. . .
Para Ventura: Well, Lieutenant?
Pibald: I'm still a little uncomfortable with the way Lota used those cannons.
Lota: Errant box was too far out of formation. Lota had to use cannon to prevent damage to equipment on deck.
Pibald: One box out of three thousand? And it just happened to contain flammable cooking oil?
Lota: Exploding rounds minimized debris. No cleanup. Also, very satisfying.
