The Librarian

So tempting ...

"Hey, speaking of TV, they've decided to settle the election on Executive Elimination! ... They're going to drop all the candidates on a deserted island and let them fight to the death. The winner becomes the next leader of Nil. It's on next Tuesday at eight o'clock on NIX TV."
"That sounds fair."
"Can they take weapons?"
"Nope. Only what they find on the island. They've seeded it with all kinds of ordnance, plus booby traps, land mines, poisoned stakes, that sort of thing. That'll weed out the weak!"

From Nil : a land beyond belief, by James Turner (creator of Rex Libris)
