Fran--Great to hear from you. I plan on sending out a copy of Beautiful Ghosts soon--that was the fourth in the series (six in all). I very much lok forward to another interview in the fall. Eliot

Which map of Tibet do you recommend I use while reading the Shan series?

Asking what map of Tibet to use is a really good question. I have never found just one map that I can use for all purposes. Anything that has been touched by the Chinese government is questionable since their maps go through political censorship and also include primarily the government's Chinese names so that traditional Tibetan names are lost. For example, millions of Tibetans came from Amdo, a province of Tibet, and my characters often speak of that land--but you will never find it on a Chinese map. For general purposes I find the National Geographic maps to be the best. I also have some maps from the 1940's I use.
