Everyone head on over to matociquala's and congratulate her for selling a deal for three novels to Bantam Spectra. Publication expected to commence Spring, 2005. w00t! eBear is an OWW habitué, a terrifically fine writer and richly deserves this. I can't wait to read 'em.



RIKU

meaning: land

陸軍 == rikugun == army
大陸 == tairiku == continent


Left radical is 'hill'. The right radical is a character found only in Chinese meaning 'mound of earth/hill', and originally showed 'earth' (土) doubled. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Hills and earthen mounds indicate land.'
