Written by Philip José Farmer & Christopher Paul Carey.
This story was found in Farmer's archives in 2009. It is based on an alternate outline fragment by Philip José Farmer of his third Khokarsa novel, The Song of Kwasin.
DESCRIPTION:
Kwasin, a cousin of Hadon, flees for the Minruth sailors and soldiers. He wants to go to Dythbeth, intended to get his name cleared. But the soldiers find him again and in the battle that follows Kwasin gets help from the snake priestess Madekha.
She asks in return his help to free the village of her twin sister, priestess Adythne. Kwasin doesn't like the burden put on him and tries to ignore the request, but he nevertheless ends up near Adythne's village.
