The Aphorisms of Kherishdar
by M.C.A. Hogarth
Alien wisdom tales about the power of community, love, and a just society.
For the Ai-Naidar, caste and tradition are not the shackles that imprison the spirit but the silences that make sense of the music of their lives. The Aphorisms of Kherishdar collects 25 short tales about what it is to have an Ai-Naidari soul: to find comfort in tradition, law and structure; to revere interdependence over individualism; to know one’s place… to always have one.
First book in a series of increasing immersion into a truly alien world. A gem for lovers of constructed languages, and a provocative read: come meditate on values rarely celebrated in fantasy and science fiction.
