* The fourth volume of Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire mentions several statues of various gods of death in the House of Black and White, including that of Bakkalon, also known as the Pale Child. Fans of [[Creator/GeorgeRRMartin the author's]] other works might recognize this as the name of a deity in his "The Thousand Worlds" setting, in particular the 1975 novelette "...and Seven Times Never Kill Man!"
