Microkhan by Brendan I. Koerner

Hello Again

September 30th, 2013 · 7 Comments

Hello Again FalconryContrary to what you may have concluded after several months of silence, I have not, in fact, abandoned this long-cherished experiment in storytelling. I had to shift Microkhan to the back burner during a long summer spent spreading the gospel of The Skies Belong to Us, an endeavor that took me to the far corners of this vast nation. And, to be frank, I had to breathe a bit after the book dropped—that project took a lot out of me, to the point that the healthiest move was to lay off the keyboard for a spell.

But I’m back now and eager to once again bring y’all the finest tales from the worlds of competitive falconry, Papua New Guinea, and the annals of smuggling. While I can’t promise that I’ll have the time to post daily, I do vow to be a much more diligent steward of this prime Internet property. Off to Kansas on a Wired assignment tomorrow, back back at you soon with something delectable. And by “you,” I mean the two or three people who have seen fit to keep Microkhan in their feeds—bless your hearts.

    I won’t speak for others, but I understand perfectly, and have been waiting patiently for your return. Loyalty to the Microkhan.

    Still need to pick up the new book – I have to get to that.

    Yay for more Microkhan!

    On a different note, those eagle hunters have some awesome hats.

    MSK can speak for me.

    We haven’t gotten smaller, we’ve just gotten more refined.

    Not sure where in Kansas you’re going to, but you should try to go by the Martin and Osa Johnson museum (the travel writing couple) in Chanute, KS.

    MSK, you are in for a treat. Brendan develops the story like a patient poker player, and by the end you realize he’s pulled off a dizzyingly rich piece of post-colonial history, not just a thriller.

    NEVER STOP, MICROKHAN. Best blog on the Internet.
