Did you tell him "Aslan" was the Turkish word for lion and get him started as a language hacker?

I'm no kind of book collector -- I mostly have shelves of old paperbacks -- but for whatever reason I was searching around for Book of the New Sun volumes and got seduced by the Easton Press editions. (Leatherbound, but way cheaper than the Centipede Press ones.) I found the first two on ebay and ordered them before I discovered Easton never got around to Autarch -- so the best I can hope for is to have the first three. Oh well. I read them in middle/high school as they were published, and then again in my 20s. I remember the story making way more sense to me the second time through. Looking forward to revisitng.
