#AtoZChallenge, Second Sunday Supplement: Khkk

A2Z-BADGE [2016]This is the second of my special Sunday posts.  The regular K post will come later in the usual order.

Khkk (pronounced by clearing your throat) is a planet technically on the far reaches of ogrespace, but far enough out that the ogres have made only the most cursory attempt to colonize or name it, although the planet does have a few built cities populated by the known races.  It is technically a terrestrial moon of a gas giant, but is the sole inhabited rock in its system.  Khkk is primarily rocky and desert, with few large bodies of water and only moderate biodiversity.

Khkk’s native race are an insectoid species simply known as the Khkks.  They are unable to communicate other than in their own language, which is a combination of sound, gesture, and pheromone smells, making them very difficult for outsiders to understand without specialized training.

Khkk is one of the main planetary settings for The Sanctum of the Sphere.

My theme for this year’s A to Z challenge is my series The Benevolence Archives.  You can learn more about the series by going to the Amazon page for Volume 1 here or add it to a Goodreads shelf here.
