The character of Steve Horne is not totally mine. The idea for Steve
came from the character of James Horne (actually spelt Horn but I like
this spelling better) that appeared on the Millennium episode Dead
Letters. The concept of Mooreland first appeared in a role-playing game in
the late 1980s, as did the Roberts House and the Moore Manor and are
totally mine. Celtic Wolfhounds are fictional but are based loosely on
Irish Wolfhounds and are, again, mine.
The names Medb and Finn come from Celtic mythology.
