Book Quote Meme

I should go to bed. We spent hours at the Maryland Renaissance Faire, and hours playing D&D, and my shoulders and neck hurt for some reason.

But right now I'm going to do this meme, which I ganked from meganbmoore:

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

Ben said, to someone at the door, "He had a dream, that's all."

From Hellburner, by C.J. Cherryh, which was lying on my desk about 4 inches from my left hand because I've been writing a huge, rambling LJ entry about it, in bits and pieces, for more than a month.

The only problem is that it's really a sequel - to Heavy Time, which is not a bad book, but I just don't love it as much. But if you read Hellburner first, you will miss out a certain amount of Ben's background, and you will also be utterly spoiled for Heavy Time.

A one-volume omnibus edition of both was issued as Devil to the Belt a couple of years ago.
