Friday 56 – The Guns Above

the guns aboveThe Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple – turn to page 56 in your current read (or 56% in your e-reader) and post a few non-spoilery sentences.

This week’s quote is from The Guns Above, a Steampunk book about Airships.

As they approached the squat medical building, Bernat saw the crew prospects teeming at the door. “If this business is so dangerous,” he asked Jutes, “why are there so many volunteers?”

“You have to die of something, don’t you? And if it’s gonna be in the army, might as well be the Aerial Signal Corps, where the pay’s high and the girls in town hang on every word of your war stories.” He grinned. “Besides which, promotion here is faster than anywhere else in the service, on account of positions opening up so often.”

Full review up next week!
