    Summary

    "Listen, my life in New York is far from perfect, I'm aware of it," Eddie starts, and Richie looks down to where Eddie's hand is resting on the sheets before he can stop himself, to the dull gleam of his wedding band, "but I'm doing fine there, I'm doing okay, it's a life. What this is— this is regurgitating stuff I got over long ago, things I've moved past. There is no use in dredging any of that up. I don't need this shit messing me up in the head."

    And Richie gets it, because he's been back home for less than 24 hours and it’s already been like going through a marathon of a midlife crisis. But he's back, lying here in Derry, with his first and oldest and bestest friend in the world, both of them half paralyzed with fear, trying to bite back the urge to grasp for him across the sheets. Good and bad, old and new.

    The one advantage of the clown, Richie thinks, is that at least there's a concrete way to deal with it.

    Richie Tozier gets his heart broken, and then some.

    You’ll feel better once it’s out. Eddie used to say that to him, when they were little.

    Summary

    Negotiator Bala-Tik and the Guavian Death Gang have seventeen solar days to sell two pissed-off, hungry rathtars (or what's left of them) to the highest bidder or face reprisal from the crime boss to whom they owe part of the profits. At least it's not like anything else could possibly go wrong with this job.

    Summary

    If...you too could pace/Behind the wagon that we flung him in/.../If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood/Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs/.../My friend, you would not tell with such high zest/To children ardent for some desperate glory/The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est/Pro patria mori.
