WHAT'S A KRELKIN?

Krelkins are strange beings I keep meeting in my dreams--something like maned, horse-tailed herbivorous greyhounds, or hornless deer-sized unicorns... with opposable thumbs and huge brains. On rare occasions, I've dreamt I am one, a wonderful experience, since Krelkins enjoy life: amiable, sensual, humorous and highly intelligent. Like human shamans, they like to roam between realities. They're not Club Med-type tourists, either--they'll explore bizarre, backward places. They'll even come here.

Anyway, the other band members liked the strangeness of the name--we'll never get mistaken for anyone else. Since no one else can spell it.

--Chris Wayan

A krelkin: a sentient herbivore like a lightly built pony with paws not hooves; opposable thumbs on the forepaws.
