Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse — Part IV: Fuller's Soap


Narrator: Southport, Dock Two, Bay Sixteen. . .
Kevyn: See, Lieutenant? Antimatter is only about fifty-percent efficient. Half of the energy from annihilation is released in the form of neutrinos, which don't significantly interact with matter.
Pibald: If you want to use "inefficiency" to try to talk me out of a pair of antimatter epaulets. . .
Pibald: . . .you shouldn't be trying to explain things in a room where an antimatter grenade vaporized everything.
Kevyn: Inefficient and dangerous.
