Since the Islamic State of Iran and Syria and “The Thin Executioner” punish criminals by death by beheading, is it possible that you read about or heard about ISIS before you wrote “The Thin Executioner”? I know it’s based on Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”, but I see some ISIS stuff going on in there.

ISIS might be the new kids on the block, but sadly they’re not doing anything new. The Thin Executioner doesn’t focus on any religion or group specifically—it’s a general comment on how we need to look for peaceful rather than violent solutions to the problems we face in life.
