While I consider this story to be part of the SEAMS16 series, it is not a SEAMS16 novel. The story does not take place on the Space Equipment Authority’s Maintenance Station 16 and there is no mention of the station anywhere within its pages. There is, in fact, no Space Equipment Authority, no one named Charlie, and no ZeeGee matches being played in a field of poles.
