When Weaver and Miller assault the first gestator in the first novel, it tries to send something that looks like a walking pile of dung, with tentacles on it. Miller shoots it, and it obliterates the gestator. Miller was knocked back into the boson due to recoil before it exploded, whereas Weaver is still teleporting when the bullets hit the piece of dung. "Tuffy" explains the nature of his race to Weaver as he's chased by a truck in a Pinto, and then some demonic state troopers. Weaver takes it all in stride, describing it as successfully making a SAN roll.
The anime reality twist was kind of neat, but the longest lasting effect was a bad taste in Weaver's mouth from anime!Weaver's pipe. Maybe next time, they tweak the drive and have a world without shrimp.
