Notes on House of Kif

Yes this is fantasy. My kind of fantasy. The following things will not have a place in this narrative: elves, vampires, werewolves, angels, demons, 'evil' as an ethnic category, farm boys, farm girls, dark towers, light towers,perfect monarchs,dark lords, or blondes.

These are the members of Sri’s household at the beginning of this story: Grandma (Sri’s father’s mother), Ghith (Sri’s great uncle), Sef (Sri’s father’s brother) and his wife Srija and their 13-year-old son Tesith, Tejir (Sri’s mother’s younger half-sister), and Afeth (Sri’s brother) and his wife Per (a Noor).

In response to dessertfirst – RRRR! I have never read that author. And here I was trying to be original with the names! I even set up my own languages – not much developed past phonemes and phonological constraints, but still, you would think it would be enough to stop me from duplicating someone else's stuff! RRRRRRRRR! Sorry, everyone. If it’s really distracting, let me know, and at least I can change “Ki” to something else. Skhala will forever be Skhala, however.

I promise Jaf and Ghia are coming back eventually.
