    Maybe latch and Dr. Ahcir are not the same person at all. Maybe the entity writing this post is yet another person named WickedBob.

    I guess I/we are going to win that category.

    How does one pronounce "ahcir"? I mentally switch the letters to "achir" because it's easier for me to process.
    I wanna see your goodreads, so add me.

    I find myself pronouncing it like the first syllable ("a") of "apple" + "cur", like "kirk". *shrug*

    I thought it was supposed to sound like "Ah, sir" or "Aye, sir".

    I once considered that possibility as a check/alternative after becoming conscious of my first automatic attempt at a pronunciation, but then I grumbled "gah, this name sucks" and just instituted a re-write to "latch" in my mind, heh.
