Welcome back to Lore of the Underlings, a trail of tales to the end of things, and maybe a bit beyond.
The lore continues. In this episode: John Cap wakes up in a circus-like ring, a courtroom where trial is about to begin. But just whose trial? Now that's the question. Meanwhile, a quirky clerk named Ho-man hits him with punch lines he doesn't expect as a comically tragic warm-up act...
But is there some secret to Ho-man's set, a clue for his foreign guest's defense? Or just a little trick or two to give the teen a ghost of a chance?
Lore of the Underlings is an epic poetry series from John Klobucher's lands of Lore. It's a bittersweet saga of gold and shadow told in classic style -- with old-world words but new-world wit. Fun for fans of puns and lyrical tongues!
