Where did Acoma come from (Re:I saw "Lady of Acoma" mentioned in"Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley)

From: Raymond E. Feist
Date: 28 October 1997

As I've said, "Acoma" was simply made up.  It is also a simple name.  It turned out, after I'd cowritten the trilogy with Janny, there was a Pueblo in New Mexico called "Acoma," which didn't surprise me much.

It's possible "Lady of Acoma" stuck in my subsconscious from when I read Brave New World, but as that was about 1958, it stuck a long time.

Best, R.E.F.
