Hey, think of the rest of that series!  I learned how to pronounce Welsh
from "The Grey King", which is still one of my favourites of the set.  It's
North Wales, IIRC - and having gone along the NW coast on the train from
Holyhead, I can say for sure that it's an absolutely *beautiful* land.
Plenty mountains, plenty sea, and it certainly *feels* like you could find
supernatural beings there.

And...ObDWJ...a bit of "The Merlin Conspiracy" is set in Wales too, though
I'm not at all sure which bit.
