Harvey 0.02: Chapter 38 & Epilogue:
"“Can I borrow your gun?” Tallow asked Roger as they prepared to exit the building and push their way through the crowd to the limo.

“Are you insane…?” Roger turned to look at Tallow, realizing that his client was making a joke. “What am I saying, of course your insane.” He shook his head incredulously."

"Inis arrived at the hotel an hour before they had to leave for the convention center. Her attitude was professional, though it didn’t take a psychologist to recognize the resentment she bared towards Robbie for cutting her vacation short."

Harvey 0.02: Chapter 36:
"Three weeks rest and relaxation in El City left Tallow anxious and ready for change. The floating elevator platform had provided some necessary recovery time and a secure environment, but other than the almost daily whirlwind visit by Rehnquist, El City lacked the social contact to which Tallow was accustomed."

Harvey 0.02: Chapter 35

Harvey 0.02: Chapter 35:
"The mid-Atlantic vista stretched endlessly towards the horizon, the plane banking slowly to the left as it made its approach to El City. Tallow watched out his window as the ocean view began to include a few drifting sailboats and cargo ships. Soon, the city drifted into the window’s frame, a slowly evolving masterpiece of engineering and architecture that had more in common with an orbital station than a terrestrial urban landscape. The original section of the city sat in the center of many concentric layers, all of which surrounded the black cable which rose upwards and disappeared visually in a far off vanishing point. Somewhere far above, on the far side of geosynchronous orbit, the cable connected to Skyland Station, El City’s suburban sister. Tallow had hoped to see one of the elevator’s which traveled between the two cities, but the visible length of cable was empty as the plane turned to make its final approach to the city."

"Christmas came and went in a flurry of presents and feeding. The slow week between the twenty-fifth and the thrity-first left Tallow time to further recover his injuries before the New Years party guests began arriving. The guest rooms were spoken for by Tallow and Julia’s closest friends and local hotels were housing the rest of the siblings’ cohort of party-goers."

Harvey 0.02: Chapter 33:
"When the limo pulled up to the gates of the summer house the guards were already in place. In addition to himself and the three bodyguards who were already working Tallow’s personal security detail, Roger had hired a team of eight extra guards to patrol the grounds. At the gate a guard carrying a small machine gun waved the limo through."

"The elevator carried us along the interior of the hemispherical endcap of the colony. In the low area, the stops were spread out every hundred meters or so. We were soon well above the main cylinder of the colony floor, Samuel pointed out a small aircraft gliding below us."

"Professor Kokono invited me to Marvin's for a drink. When I arrived, I was suprised to see that he had Indigo with him. They were sitting in the quiet corner booth. I sat down and ordered. Kokono spoke first,"

Harvey 0.02: Chapter 32

Harvey 0.02: Chapter 32:
"Tallow awoke with a tightness in his chest muscles that seemed to pull tension throughout his body, skewing his equilibrium as he slowly raised himself from the marginal comfort of bed. He sat on the edge of the mattress for a long moment, using his feet to fish up the boxers he’d left on the floor the night before. He managed, with slow, frustrating movements, to pull on the boxers shorts and then repeated the long, slow pattern with the T-shirt that also lay next to the bed. When he finished he gained some satisfaction for marginally dressing himself for the first time in over a week. The, gathering his balance, he physically and mentally readied himself for the short journey into his wheelchair. Guster had woken earlier and Tallow, determined to leave his days as an invalid behind him, had no desire to call out for her help."
