Hello, and welcome. You’re listening to DaHjaj Hol, your daily dose of Klingon language. I’m your host, Lawrence Schoen.

Today’s noun may fill you with disgust, but it’s a word you need to know. It’s nuch. N, U, CH. nuch means coward. As disgusting and offensive as this word may be, nonetheless here are some practice sentences for you:

nuchpu’ vIleghDI’ jIropchoH
when I see cowards I become ill

not nuch yoH wIghom
we’ve never met a brave coward

nutoj nuch ’ej Dujmaj batlhmaj je tlhap
the coward tricked us and took our ship and our honor


One could take this vile word, and find some honor in it because anything that improves your command of the language serves you. Work this word hard, use it in many different sentences, punish it with every suffix you can imagine. Even cowards can be made to open worlds, if you use the right language. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.

Bufflito Destiny
Today’s podcast is brought to you by Buffalito Destiny by Lawrence M. Schoen.

“Only Lawrence Schoen could blend the Mayan eschaton, nightclub hypnotism, corporate elitism, radical environmentalism, and good old-fashioned slam-bang adventure fiction.”

— Jay Lake, Campbell Award winner

“The Amazing Conroy is a stage hypnotist who has parlayed an alien buffalo dog — a creature that eats anything and farts oxygen — into a powerful corporation worth billions. An ambitious plan to use these buffalitos to clean up toxic waste sites places him in direct conflict with a radical anti-alien ecoterrorist organization, and before long, Conroy is on the run with only his pet buffalito, Reggie, and his gambler pal, Left-John Mocker, to aid him. As bizarre dreams guide him inexorably towards a mysterious destiny, Conroy deals with prophetic aliens, ancient Mayan ruins, exquisite sandwiches and the temporally-unstable state of Texas. Part crisis-filled road trip, part gonzo race against time, and all tongue-in-cheek humor and charm, this nutty tale may sound strange, but Schoen somehow makes it all come together.”
