Even though this seems a reply from me to myself, I'm actually
replying to what Josh asked me to post for him.

It started out as a novel actually, but the background became more important and I found a book already written by someone else that was very much what I wanted to write (Deryni Rising by Katherine Kurtz) so I concentrated on the world. There are short stories, though; they're all in Dutch, but I know that some of you can read that.

They're not "pages" as such, but my own notes, and the grammar (not the Valdyas grammar, but the description of it) is no good, so I'm not letting anyone read it till I've reworked it; and if I'm reworking it anyway it's little trouble to do it in English.

I'm about to upload it; I made it into Valdyan-and-English and HTML this afternoon. No glosses yet, but who knows what I'll have time for. Irina (mailing list address) (myself) (English) (Nederlands)
