Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part II: Barsoom Circus Command


SCHLOCK: You're the lady from the ad-screen again.  How do you know my name?

LUNESBY: I'm Lunesby, the unfortunately-now-notorious "Ghost in the Machine" here in Sol System.

I've granted a few too many favors in recent months, and now they're closing in on me.

LUNESBY: I know you because you're friends with Ennesby, the A.I. who accidentally "sired" me in Luna's government systems.

SCHLOCK: Oh.  You're the one Massey said could hack the Barsoom Circus computers for us.

LUNESBY: That particular favor falls into the "too many" column.  Fills it right up, even.
