Of People, Places, and Things
It occurred to me the other day that this Mageworlds thing is getting
extensive and complex enough that a style sheet/character list of sorts would
not be a bad thing to pass along to the copyeditor of the next one when it gets
turned in. Accordingly, I've been cobbling some stuff together out of (mostly)
spell checker supplementary dictionary files. I thought it might be amusing to
post bits of it here for nitpickers and obsessive-compulsives with more spare
time than I've got to correct, amplify and add items to. For example--I know
for a fact that more Space Force personnel got mentioned by name over the
course of the first three books than got added to the supplemental
