The vermic kingdom: jarales worm

Apologies, but we haven't got round to adding a detailed description of this species to the website. Please bear with us as we continue to develop this page.

Literary extracts

The following extract has been taken from my (currently unpublished) novel The Gods in the Jungle.

From Chapter 1: Maeduul tells the Story of the First Creation
"Such great things grew from those tiny seeds: gar bushes, for instance, with their purple leaves and golden fruits from which are birthed the tiny red flies that buzz around our heads in the heat of midday; and the jarales worms who make those strong, supple threads to give us shimmering waterproof cloaks. And not forgetting shivvanan dust which puts bubbles in our bread, nor lutestran leaves for the making of happy dreams, nor the vedegga tree whose nuts have made our city rich! Even the barby rats, those gods of the jungle who guard our city, grew from that first pile of tiny seeds!"
