In which I admit to getting a joke after twenty-one years.

For twenty-one years now, the name Sullivan Dane for the religious monster-hunter in Vampire: The Masquerade has vaguely bothered me, because Im British and have never met or heard of anyone British with Sullivan as a first name. Why is he called that? Then looking at Matt McFarlands new book Dust To Dust this afternoon, I realised (and RMB has now kindly confirmed) that...

Its a reference to Solomon Kane.

I have never read the stories, but I saw the film when it came out a couple years ago, and have been at least vaguely aware of the character since something like 1986.

So, yeah... I feel real smart right now..
