Tinkari

Tinkari is an ingénue, a sacred prostitute from the brothel-temple in the heart of the city of Kalrim. When he said he wanted to see the world, Mother rolled her eyes and said he’d be back soon; the world was full of ugliness and discomfort, when he lived surrounded by soft bread and music, by pleasure and beauty.

But Tinkari found something else.

Tinkari is from the Hugo-nominated autor Mimi Mondal’s wonderful story coming up in The Bloody-Handed Name of Bronze! I’m really honored that she’s working with me, and I think you’ll enjoy learning about Tinkari and those he meets along his way.

I wonder what the traditions of hospitality in The Fifth World are. How do you feed someone you haven’t seen in a long time? Is it different when you want to ask them a favor?
