That's such a weight off my mind, you have no idea.

It had been worrying me, in retrospect, that the C&C glossary
contained so many references to the events of _The Crown of Dalemark_.

The glossary in the back of my copy of C&C has entries only for the
people and places mentioned in C&C. Same for my copies of _Drowned
Ammet_, _The Spellcoats_, and tCoD.

I get the feeling, though, that all four glossaries are extracts from
some complete-guide-to-everything-in-the-Quartet that has been split
between the four books. (I've mentioned already, I think, that I have
a matching set.)

If I'm right, the first edition of tCoD seems to me to be a plausible
place for this comprehensive glossary to have been published. Does
your copy of tCoD include glossary entries for names that are only
mentioned in the other books? (Bangalorolob? Lalla? Zwitt?)
