Kino's Journey VIII: Frontispiece

Here's a short update to kickstart Volume VIII. Enjoy.

<<Volume VII

* * * 

Frontispiece: The Country of Roads
-Go West!-

“These roads are great, Kino.”


“They’re more like streets than roads. The smoothest, widest, gentlest, and prettiest streets I’ve ever been on.”

“Me too.”

“Cheers to the amazing people who made these amazing streets.”

“Yeah… Not that you can drink, Hermes.”

“I’m just saying that’s how great these streets are. I wish I could meet them and thank them in person.”

“That would’ve been nice.”

“I wonder why…”

“…Why did everyone in this country die? I don’t know. It’s not like there’s anyone around to ask.”

“That’s true. Anyway…”


“How far does this street go? We’ve been going for so long I’d have expected to see the western gates soon.”

“Yeah… We’ve been going for two whole days.”

“You’ll break your own rule if we don’t make it out today.”

“That’s why I’m trying so hard.”

“These roads are great, Kino.”



  1. This is a very interesting update. Hopefully we find out more about this country later in the novel.

    As a side question, why do you not put up .pdf or .epub files of Kino's Journey?

  2. Man, i love this series. Thanks so much for the update :)
