The Admonishments of Kherishdar is a collection of short stories, called incense stories by the Ai-Naidar, which introduces Kor Nai'Nerillin-osulkedi, the priest of Shame, through first-person accounts of individuals sent to him for Correction. The Admonishments, along with The Aphorisms of Kherishdar, lead up to the events of Black Blossom, the novel-length work set in Kherishdar.
The Admonishments was published independently in 2008 as a crowdfunded web-serial. Readers and fans paid professional rates for both the stories and paintings that adorn the book.
In Kherishdar, when a person commits a crime, they become their sin.... Suicide. Rape. Child Abuse. Addiction. Twenty-five crimes. Twenty-five stories. Twenty-five narrators... and one minister over them all, to judge, convict and Correct the faulty: the priest who serves Shame. This companion volume to The Aphorisms of Kherishdar explores the wayward and their journey back to society, offering another glimpse into the Ai-Naidari culture. A darker, more difficult glimpse-- Without Shame, there is no Civilization.
