PALE PENGUIN created a new topic V.I.M.BREAKS ANN23 MAX PEAK & NYCTEUS in the forums.

At the hotel the postman was having a drink while he waited for the girl to sign for a large forwarding envelope heavy with enclosedletters from her bank in Paris. There were three letters re-addressed from his bank, too. It was the first mail since they had sent the hotel as a forwarding address .. The young man gave 1 the postman five francs and asked him to -have another glass of wine with him at the zinc bar. The girl unhooked the key from the hoard and said, "I'll go up to the-room and get cleaned up and meet you at the cafe." After he finished his glass he said goodbye to the postman and walked down along the canal to the cafe. It was good to sit in the shade after walking back bareheaded in the sun from the far beach and it was pleasant and cool in the cafe. He ordered a vermouth and soda and took out his pocket knife and slit open his letters. All three envelopes were from his publishers and two of them were fat with clippings and the proofs of advertisements. He glanced at the clippings and then read the long letter. It was cheerful and guardedly optin:'-istic. It was too early to tell how the book would do but everything looked good. Most of the rev,iews were excellent Of course there were some. But that was to be-expected. Sentences had been underlined in the reviews that would probably be used in the future advertisements. His publisher wished he could say more about how the book would do but he never made predictions as to sales. It was bad practice. The point was that the book could not have been better received.

For a long time there was silence. Thacher stared at Erickson. The older man was leaning back in his chair, sipping a little of his drink. Mara and Jan were silent. "So you didn't destroy the City," Thacher said. "You didn't destroy it at all. You shrank it down and put it in a glass globe, in a paperweight. And now you're salesmen again, with a sample case of office supplies!" Erickson smiled. He opened the briefcase and reaching into it he brought out the glass globe paperweight. He held it up, looking into it. "Yes, we stole the City from the Martians. That's how we got by the lie detector. It was true that we knew nothing about a destroyed City." "But why?" Thacher said. "Why steal a City? Why not merely bomb it?" "Ransom," Mara said fervently, gazing into the globe, her dark eyes bright. "Their biggest City, half of their Council—in Erick's hand!" "Mars will have to do what Terra asks," Erickson said. "Now Terra will be able to make her commercial demands felt. Maybe there won't even be a war. Perhaps Terra will get her way without fighting." Still smiling, he put the globe back into the briefcase and locked it. "Quite a story," Thacher said. "What an amazing process, reduction of size— A whole City reduced to microscopic dimensions. Amazing. No wonder you were able to escape. With such daring as that, no one could hope to stop you."

"Must I stop?" the girl asked. "I'm having the most wonderful dream." "Finish the dream," he said. "Thank you." In a few minutes she breathed very deeply and shook her head and sat up. "Let's go in now," she said. They went in together and swam out and then played under water like porpoises. When they swam in they dried each other off with towels and he handed her the bottle of wine that was still cool in the roIled newspaper and they each took a drink and she looked at him and laughed. "It's nice to drink it for thirst," she said. ''You don't really mind being brothers do you?". "No." He touched her forehead and her nose and then her cheeks and chin with the oil and then put it carefully above and behind her ears. "I want to get behind my ears and ne.ck tanned and over my cheekbones. All the new places." ''You're awfully dark, brother," he said. "You don't know how
dark." "I like it," the girl said. "But I want to be darker." They lay on the beach on the firm sand that was dry now but still cool after the high tide had fallen. The young man put some oil on the palm of. his hand and spread it lightly with his fingers over the girl's thighs and they glowed wann as the skin took the oil. He went on spreading it over her belly and breasts and the girl said sleepily, 'We don't look very much like brothers when
we're this way do we?" "No." "I'm trying to be such a very good girl," she said. ".Truly you don't have to worry darlinguntil night. We won't let the nighthings come in the day."

In the morning he had been very hungry for breakfast but he waited for her to wake. He kissed her finally and she woke and smiled and got up sleepily and washed in the big basin and slouched in front of the mirror of the armoire and brushed her hair and looked at the mirror unsmiling and then smiled and touched-her cheeks with the tips of her fingers and pulled a striped shirt over her head_and then kissed him. She stood straight so her breasts pushed against his chest and she said, "Don't worry, David. I'm your good girl come back again," But he was very worried now and he thought what will become of us if things ha~e gone this wildly and this- dangerously and this fast? What can there be that will not bum out in a fire that rages like that? We were happy and I am sure she was happy. But who ever knows? And who are you to judge and" who participated and who accepted the change and lived 'it? If that is what she wants who are you not to wish her to have it? You're lucky to have a wife like her and a sin is what you feel bad after and you don't feel bad. Not with the wine you don't feel bad, he told himself, and what will you drink when the wine won't cover for you? He took the bottle of oil out of the rucksack and put a little oil on the girl's chin and on her cheeks and on her nose and found a blue faded patterned handkerch.ief in the canvas pocket of'the rucksack and laid it across her breast.

RELEASE INFO
ARTIST: MECHANICAL PRESSURE
TITLE: “IAM SPACE VOL.5”
FORMAT: MP3/WAV
LABEL: V.I.M. RECORDS
CAT. No: VIMIAMS05
RELEASE DATE: LATE JUNE
GENRE: Breaks
COVER DESIGN: 246 Design

So things began to pall for him. The merry smiles he used to wear at other people’s funerals began to fade. He began to despise the Universe in general, and everyone in it in particular. This was the point at which he conceived his purpose, the thing which would drive him on, and which, as far as he could see, would drive him on forever. It was this. He would insult the Universe. That is, he would insult everybody in it. Individually, personally, one by one, and (this was the things he really decided to grit his teeth over) in alphabetical order. When people protested to him, as they sometimes had done, that the plan was not merely misguided but actually impossible because of the number of people being born and dying all the time, he would merely fix them with a steely look and say “A man can dream can’t he?”.
And he started out. He equipped a spaceship that was built to last with the computer capable of handling all the data processing involved in keeping track of the entire population of the known Universe and working out of the horrifically complicated routes involved.
