Good memory! You're right on both counts, Constantine.
BTW, wasn't it Shahazar Cormac raided? Shahrazar, I think, was in the Kirby O' Donnell stories. Though I like better the sound of the latter.
In "The Sowers of Thunder"
Nearly half a century ago the adventurer Cormac FitzGeoffrey raided Shahazar among the mountains and bore away untold plunder.
Two Kirby O'Donnell stories take place in the forbidden city of Shahrazar, "The Treasure of Tartary" and "Swords of Shahrazar."
