Hey Master Shan,

just finished reading The Thin Executioner and I really loved it , one of your best books !!!! so i was wondering if you can write an extra on how to spell the names of The Thin Executioner .... there has been a few difficult words for me to spell and didn’t know how to exactly read ; like the name of the nations in Makhras and some characters . and why don’t you write a new part about Jebel Rum in Shanta Claus about him and his wife and children.

Thanx anyway <3 :)

I’m guessing you mean “pronounce” the names. The trouble is, the names are almost all based on real names of places in Jordan, but not being Jordanian, I can only guess at their correct pronunciations. Thus, I would be hesitant to provide a guide in this instance. Just pronounce the names any way you choose—your pronunication will be every bit as valid as mine!!
