Subject: Anne Rice/"Sister Death"
Glen makes a good argument for Sister Death being inspired by
Anne Rice. I confess it has been a few years since I read "Interview
With a Vampire". My case for Sister Death deriving from the Sandman
comic is somewhat circumstantial. First, Death is Dream's sister, ergo
Sister Death. Second, Death's role in Gaiman's cosmology is to escort
dying souls to their post-corporeal destinations--thus accounting for
the line "Sister Death get me out of here"--However, I'm inclined to agree
with Glen D. Of course, it's possible that the J. Butcher was inspired by
his own muse, Neil Gaiman, Anne Rice or any combination of the three.
On a different topic, anybody know where I can get
Distressed Gentlefolk on CD?
