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

It’s true, it’s true, the month is winding down, and for those of us in the northern hemisphere of this particular planet the days are growing shorter and the temperature getting colder. Which is as good an excuse for a proverb as we’re likely to find. And so, without further delay, here is this week’s proverb:

vulchoHbe’ tlhInganpu’
Klingons do not faint

Huh. I bet you didn’t know that… the “no fainting” thing I mean. Now, aren’t you glad you listened today? You never know when or where this kind of inter-species tidbit will turn out to be critically important.

Ponder that a while, and if that doesn’t hold your interest, you can always fall back on this: 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.”
