Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part V: Command and Conquer


GEN. TAGON: Damico said you were going to be using direct pain induction.  What's with the knives?

TORTURER: Do sharp things make you nervous, General Tagon?  Does the glint of cold, molaminated alloy send a chill up what's left of your spine?

GEN. TAGON: I've been tortured before, kid.  This isn't my first time in a jar, and I've been hooked up to pain induction, too.

TORTURER: Ah, but has the pain induction system ever been hooked up to a headless monkey?

GEN. TAGON: No, the monkey is new.
