- DuckDuckGo offers helpful alternative searches, like substituting "flunky" for "lackey". In the unlikely event that I ever do roller derby, I want Mercedes Flunky to be my derby name.
- On mercedeslackey.com, the page on If I Pay Thee Not In Gold by Lackey and Piers Anthony simply says "If I Pay Thee Not in Gold is the first and last collaboration between the two authors." No context, no explanation given since both authors are still alive and working. It was THAT bad.
- I first read Magic's Pawn 18 years ago, and only noticed now that Yfandes is a GIRAFFE. Even when I was ten, an average-sized horse's head did not clear my head by that much, and Vanyel is in his teens. There is also something very wrong with their relative leg length, but I can't work it out.
I guess Vanyel was right when he kept yelling at Lord Withen that Yfandes is NOT A HORSE, DAMMIT.
