The Origins of The Pit

The Chronicles of the White Bull collection was actually born out of another project, one that hasn’t been completed yet.  That story featured Elad, the knight who appears in The Pit, as one of the main characters.

At the time I was just starting to get interested in writing short fiction and decided to do a piece featuring him, to get a idea of who he was and the setting.  It was while writing that story that Nhaqosa emerged.  Initially he was there to provide an outsiders view of Elad, but right from the start he began to take over the story as a major character in his own right.  And then he demanded further stories to be written about him.

In the end eight stories were written of his journeys and the story that spawned it still hasn’t been written yet.  While his journey is complete it may be that he will make an appearance again in the future.
