  1. I don't mind unique names for spec-fic creatures. Adds flavour. Thought you were being a little harsh there. Bless. Still loving you guys though x

  2. I think the issue with Lin Carter’s naming can be summed up as defined in the Turkey City Lexicon.

    “Call a Rabbit a Smeerp“
    A cheap technique for false exoticism, in which common elements of the real world are re-named for a fantastic milieu without any real alteration in their basic nature or behaviour. “Smeerps” are especially common in fantasy worlds, where people often ride exotic steeds that look and act just like horses.


    Good episode...as usual!
