Dear readers, tonight is a first for us! With us is someone – some thing – without a name, one of the legendary Pukah. “What are the Pukah?” I hear you ask. Well, that is something that we would all like to know. Due to the Pukah rather, errm, unique nature, their creator K. Caffee is also with us. So it’s our absolute pleasure to break new grounds, and interview both the protagonist and the author at the same time!
So what, exactly, are the Pukah?

(K. Caffee: Nameless was born to the slave cells of the Melkresken and was not socialized until he was about seven. Before that, he remained in complete isolated darkness. Between the pukah inability to tell unadulterated truths and his early childhood, he mangles his syntax. I’m just happy he can string together an almost coherent sentence – most children raised in similar environments never manage to accomplish that. Even after he began learning to speak, he remained in isolation until he became an adult.) Continue reading “Nameless (of the Followers of Torments series by K. Caffee)”
