    Summary

    “I need a lot of things. Answers; a chance to forget; for the world to stop sucking so much. I’m not really used to actually getting any of that.” Isaac sips his whiskey again. It’s good enough that he wants to close his eyes. He doesn’t. He’s a lot of things, but he sure as hell isn’t suicidal. “So, you want stories, how about you start by giving me something to call you?”

     

    “Why?” the stranger asks easily. “You want a name for when you think about me later tonight?”

    The Survivor meets a man in a bar; a few days later, he meets Deacon. It's possible his observation skills could use a little work.

    Summary

    The courier was a good man, inoffensive, who limped and shuffled from town to town, drawing letters or packages out of his long pockets, bringing well-wishes and gifts, news and postcards. He shook hands, kissed babies, and told wild stories about places he'd been to. It was easy to travel with him, an easy pace, sleeping under the stars or eating hot plates on kindly strangers' porches. He always said softly he didn't want trouble. He never wanted any trouble. At first they all figured him for a kindly older gentleman, some poor cripple who might have been a veteran.

    But when the gang recovers two stealth devices from the nightkin, the courier cooks up one wild scheme after another to rescue NCR soldiers and bring justice to Vegas fiends. What started as running deliveries soon spirals into bounty hunting, with a mix of superior technology and ideas crazy enough to work. Boone goes from the bodyguard of a rag-tag wandering outfit to a wasteland enforcer, losing his grip on reality under the influence of the Stealth Boy, and troubled by nightmares of the dead, the courier must confront at last the secrets of his past.
