Meta-commentary on the story Edit
- Same as always: it was an unpaid little thingy written for the chapbook of a convention, and I refuse to be bound by it. Sheesh, I no longer even remember what happens in it except for the Zelazny reference that was sort's [sic] of it's whole point.
The [Roger] Zelazny reference is presumably a scene in Nine Princes in Amber. In that book, while Corwin and Random are Shadowdriving, they run into a storm. Corwin briefly sees "a horseman, racing in the other direction, dressed all in gray, collar turned high and head lowered against the rain."
"A Dream of Passion" has a brief moment where Vlad is riding a horse when a storm breaks, and he sees "a wagon going very fast in the other direction, with bright lamps and no horses", which is presumably meant to be Random and Corwin's car.
