Crossover Cover: Bride of the Rat God

According to this novel by Barbara Hambly, Norah Blackstone came to America on a ship called the Ruritania, named after the country seen in Anthony Hope’s The Prisoner of Zenda and Rupert of Hentzau.


  1. Is it specifically said to be named after a real country or is it just called the Ruritania?

    That said, I think even if it is specified it would count as a crossover since people aren't in the habit of naming ships after fictional countries.

    1. It's just called the Ruritania.

    2. I was wondering. One of these days I'm going to write a story involving all the fictional countries from various works.

      I read about the book online. It sounded interesting.
