2nd Edition of the Chrestomathy: Mk II

As you may recall, I have been having some trouble getting the latest edition of the chrestomathy out. After trying both Lulu and Cafepress (both of which had served me well in the past) to no avail and many printing errors, I have resorted to good old Kinkos. The end product is a little different than previous incarnations, being less pocket sized and more... let's see, how to spin it? more desk sized, but it still holds true to my original blurb:

Created on a whim by Neal Wiley in 2007, the Órgom Silawa language has been evolving ever since. This volume chronicles that process since its inception and the first halting paragraphs composed in it, to the latest and most sophisticated original poetry. In addition to an updated grammatical outline and introductory course, this new edition features an enlarged glossary of over 1600 entries: enough information for you to read any existing text and compose your own on nearly any topic. Enjoy the birth of a language and its culture!

Now enjoy some pictures!

Rare Picture of Órgom Silawa Ruins

The text on the lintel reads "oslán rún," meaning "east gate."
