Some stories we are given to hear for the first time. If there is no one else to write them down, we become the DreamCatcher. Some stories we are given to tell, for the first time. Then we become the Teller of the Tales.

These tales were told by Teller over the course of about ten years. They have been transcribed as faithfully as possible by Teller's DreamCatcher, who filled in a few gaps here and there and made these stories into the pages you see on your screen.

We are truly elders now, and this is our personal internet domain. When we depart, this will be gone. Savor it now, and if you like what you read, we could get it to you in quality trade paperback form suitable for gifting. See "Epilogue" for details.
