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


SCHLOCK: You've hired yourself an amorph, Lunesby.  Now what?

LUNESBY: I'll be in touch.  For now, tell no-one.  Your quarters are not secure.

I must disconnect before this communication is traced.  Good-bye, and thank you!

SCHLOCK: Hold up, you still haven't paid me the advance!

SCHLOCK: Lunesby, if you can hear me, this lost comm you led me to is not worth enough to serve as a down-payment.

Wallet: Hello!  I am a lost wallet full of non-sequential, large-denomination U.N.S. credits.  My ident has been erased.  Will you rescue me?

SCHLOCK: Hello, little lost wallet.

Be very afraid.  I am going to gut you and then drop your empty husk into a 'cycler.
