Old Venus, edited by George R. R. Martin:
frottage

My dictionary in the book shelf by my chair did not have this word. My other dictionary did, but only one definition. Urban Dictionary had both definitions; the other definition was the one that fit the context.

eleemosynary

My Firefox spellcheck recognizes it, and it's in my dictionary, but why did the author choose to use this word? Was he trying to emulate William F. Buckley Jr.?

Reading Tony Hillerman's Leaphorn & Chee series.

Looking up a lot of mountains.

Dinetah: The traditional boundary of the land is demarcated by four mountains: Blanca Peak (Sis Naajinį́), to the east, Mount Taylor (Tsoodzil), to the south, the San Francisco Peaks (Dook'o'ooshį́į́), to the west, and Hesperus Peak, (Dibé Nitsaa), to the north.

Blanca Peak Colorado



Mount Taylor (New Mexico), Tsoodzil, the blue bead mountain, sometimes translated Turquoise Mountain



San Francisco Mountains (Utah).



Hesperus Mountain (Colorado). Hesperus is notable as the Navajo People's Sacred Mountain of the North, Dibé Ntsaa, which marks the northern boundary of the Dinetah, their traditional homeland.
