An unused opening sentence. It's yours, if you want it:
This is the way the world ends, not with a bang but with an offer you can't refuse.
And then this, not from my novel, I hasten to reassure you:
The worker housing looked like an extruded turd. Which it wasn't -- literally. Though it was made up of organic waste products extruded by a gent whose characterization I refuse to [something].
You know what he was.
Again, I censored out a plot point from the novel. The same one, in fact, I censored out earlier. It would have been pointless to leave one in.
Finally, a fragment of the novel which does reveal a plot point. You have been warned:
"Okay, boys," Enkidu said reluctantly. "We've got our orders. Try to be gentle. I mean, kill 'em, but with a minimum of pain, if you know what I'm getting at."
"Wait!" Surplus said. "--
Man, that's what I call a cliff-hanger! The (*) is a note to myself to make sure I include this bit in the novel.
