Krelkins are beautiful beings I keep meeting in my dreams. They vary a bit, from big, maned, horse-tailed greyhoundlike creatures to hornless deer-sized unicorns with opposable thumbs. But they always have the same feel to them--friendly, sensual, humorous and highly intelligent. And, like human shamans, they like to roam between worlds! They're not Club Med-type tourists, either--they'll explore bizarre, dangerous, savage places. In fact, they like to slum. I mean, they'll even come here.

I suspect this dreamword "Krelkin" refers to the old movie "Forbidden Planet." It's about a lost race called the Krel, who invented a device that materialized their thoughts. They forgot about their dreams, and were destroyed the first night by (as a human explorer in the movie put it) "Monsters from the Id". I dunno. Some people sure have those. But not everyone. My dream-beings, my Krel-kin, seem pretty nice.


If you're looking for a BAND named The Krelkins, you almost found it. The band was named for these dream-creatures, and I'm in it. The Krelkins page has downloadable songs and contact info.
