One thing I can't figure out - Newcago's name is obviously a short of New Chicago. So is there anything Babilar stands for? The "Babyl-" part is obviously from Babylon, but I can't think of anything for "-ar"... Babylon Restored > Babylo-R > Babylor > Babylar kind of makes sense, but it doesn't make me happy.

Peter Ahlstrom

Babyl-R (say the letter name).

So, Brandon confirmed in the preface to this version [of Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell] that Hoid is definitely not there.

However, I wouldn't rule out the person I thought was Hoid actually being someone else important.

By the way, Brandon originally wrote the prologue to The Alloy of Law soon after finishing The Alloy of Law and he meant it to be the prologue to Shadows of Self. Then he decided that The Alloy of Law needed a better prologue than its current chapter 1, which was originally the prologue.

What is a sparkflicker?

Peter Ahlstrom

It’s like the steel part of flint-and-steel.

BotanicaXu

So a sparkflicker is a fire-maker? Herdazians use their stone fingernails to start fire?

Peter Ahlstrom

Yes

BotanicaXu

Do they wear sparkflickers as an ornament?

Peter Ahlstrom

Yes, but it’s also practical.

BotanicaXu

This “deep implication”, is it that Herdazians are related to the Parshendi (aka they have Listener blood)?

Peter Ahlstrom

Yes.
