"In The Algebraist, Iain M. Banks reveals a creature with 'signal skin.' Here's a quote: 'Fassin opened the pane and let the creature in. It flipped inside, made a sign that was probably meant to be the Dweller equivalent of 'Shh!' and floated towards him, curling and cupping its body so that it formed a sickle shape, just a metre away from the prow of the arrowhead craft. Then, on its signal skin, now shielded from sight in all directions save that Fassin was watching from, it spelled out, OAZIL: MEET ME 2KM STRAIGHT DOWN, HOUR 5, RE. VALSEIR'"

"Oazil might have displayed the text of Destructive Recall..."I was born in a water moon." The AI should have delivered the message to Fassin. or as Quercer & Janath would say..." Here is some crazy glue for your eyelids.""

"The second sentence of the description should probably read "I'm the only reporter...""
