BLACK DAWN quote of the day #6

Counting down ...BLACK DAWN is coming to the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand on May 1! Check out the preorder links on your local independent bookstore, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, Walmart, Waterstones UK, WH Smith UK, Whitcoulls New Zealand ... and many more fine retailers.

Now, on to the quote of the day! How about a little Shane and Myrnin conversation?


“I will be in the center of the first floor, main control room at the far east end of the building. I will be there to disable the startup panels and program the system to reverse the flow of the pipes. That process is going to take the longest," Myrnin said.

Shane raised his hand. “Uh, question?”


“You didn’t design this plant, did you? It’s not made out of— I don’t know, cow entrails and flywheels or anything?”

Myrnin gave him a cool, blank look and said, “In fact this was built by an engineering firm from Houston, I believe. In the 1950s. There is a sad lack of entrails, cow or otherwise. Are you finished?”

“Suppose so.” Shane shrugged. “Hey, is it okay if I wear the flamethrower this time?”

“Can anybody stop you?” Myrnin asked. “By all means.”
