The role-playing game Bureau 13: Stalking the Night Fantastic features a top-secret government agency that investigates supernatural activities. Nick Pollotta has written a series of novels dealing with the Bureau, including Damned Nation, a prequel set eight months after the start of the Civil War (i.e., December 1861.) A Confederate monster hunter mentions that he knows Rhett Butler, whom he describes in the following manner: "Nice fellow, strange ears, bad taste in women." The "strange ears" reference evokes Clark Gable's portrayal of Rhett in the film version of Gone with the Wind. Gable was known for his prominent ears. However, there's no reason why the literary Rhett couldn't have similar hearing organs.
