    Marshall Islands

  • Ebeye will be a vast, blazing pyre within an hour; a few of them may manage the difficult swim to Kwajalein (where the cultists have a fine tradition of stoning to death any male who swims over), a few more may wait it out on the beach -- and all of those will then perish when Clem scrapes these islands to bare rock.

    Mother Of Storms

  • For the last few years, Ebeye has been a perennial subject for XV coverage -- stories of cannibalism, of girls bred and raised for prostitution and sold by the dozens to Japanese entrepreneurs, the Thirst Riot when the single desalinating plant broke down, the siege for ransom of one large building by a local criminal syndicate, the ring selling infant tissues for tank-grown transplant materials ....

  • Just before the fighting that led to the American departure broke out, the U.S. had attempted to solve the extremely embarrassing problem of that island slum, with its Fourth World misery jammed up within sight of the Kwajalein's golf course, shopping malls, and movie theaters, by virtually covering Ebeye with modern high-rise housing.

    Mother Of Storms

  • There were stories on XV, last year, of a "party palace" on Ebeye which offered select Westerners and Asians the opportunity to eat a fine dinner served by slave girls, to rape as many of them as they cared to, and then to see several of them tortured and killed.

    Mother Of Storms

  • By the time Clem's outer winds begin to tear at the burned-out remnants of Ebeye the next morning, storm surges have already rolled over the Ratak chain several times, and Majuro is cleared of garbage for the first time in several decades.
