paq’batlh is the definitive edition of the grand Klingon epic of Kahless the Unforgettable (qeylIS lIjlaHbogh pagh), a tale comparable to those of ancient heroes Hercules, Ulysses, and Gilgamesh. Betrayed by his brother and witness to his father’s brutal slaying, Kahless must regain his honor by traveling into the Underworld, creating the first bat’leth, and uniting with his true love, Lady Lukara. Through this awe-inspiring adventure Kahless redefines what it is to be truly Klingon. The second edition includes a fully revised text and translation, as well as a new preface on no’ Hol by DeSDu’ jen puqloD. Floris Schönfeld is a visual artist and filmmaker based in San Francisco and Amsterdam. Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei is a philologist and the co-director of punctum books. He received a PhD in Media & Communications from the European Graduate School and another PhD in Modern Thought from the University of Aberdeen.
