On a Pale Horse

I just read that Disney has bought rights to and started to cast and find a script writing for Piers Anthony's On a Pale Horse. I haven't read any Piers Anthony books in years, but of all of his works I've read, I remember the immortality series most fondly and respectfully. I was interested in personifications long before I encountered his series, and it was their personifying interests as well as their mythic nature which helped to interest me.

My vague memory and definite hunch is that Anthony tends to err on the side of predictable personificatory iconography, so I bet that somewhere in On a Pale Horse there's a sandglass. I bet there'll be at least one in the movie as well.
