To Sail Among The Stars

JeremiahJeremiah and Kurdy follow up on another of Simon’s leads, traveling to an impoverished village to learn about a group of people called the Burners. On the way, they stop for the night, and Jeremiah finds a young woman siphoning their truck’s gas tank. When he goes to stop her, she gets away after fending him off. The next day, their contact, a man named Eddie who runs a pool hall, isn’t eager to talk about that topic during business hours, but invites Jeremiah to come back later. Eddie reveals that the Burners are using what was once known as hot zone biohazard gear – airtight suits and flamethrowers – as a terrifying means of enforcing their will on others. Worse yet, despite the extinction of telephones, the internet, and radio, the Burners are somehow coordinating their attacks when their cells are in completely different cities. After giving this information to Jeremiah, Eddie is murdered later that night. Jeremiah also runs into the lady gas thief once more, and discovers that she’s keeping an awful lot of a very flammable liquid around rather than selling it…
