The Luggage Store

  • Is this an interchapter? It's short, but it has characters with names, which the other interchapters don't. So we're not sure. 
  • Father Peregrine (from "The Fire Balloons") comes to talk to the luggage-store owner about the war that's coming on Earth. 
  • Just one of your light, humorous conversations about nuclear war. 
  • The luggage-store owner argues that people will return to Earth because that's still their home. He decides to keep his store open because he thinks people will soon be going back to Earth. 
  • (It's so hard to know what to pack for a nuclear war. Do you need your bathing suit when the water will be boiling and toxic?)
