In honor of old-school skiffy  
My tribute to a certain type of writer, one that is apparently knows what people want and don't want to read (e.g. "people don't want to read about menopausal women.")
Thanks to recent conversations with rose_lemberg .

Ah -- sorry. (I'm actually quoting a badly proofread edition of Romance of the Three Kingdoms -- the text was supposed to read "wheels of flame".)

And thanks!

The context is someone was attacking a military camp at night and set fire to the supply carts. (It really is an unfortunate edition, in some ways.)
