Oh yeah, I had a sentient house in a role-playing game I ran once.  But it
only murdered would-be burglars. :-)  Come to think of it, it was loosely
based on Charles de Lint's Tamson House.  And I've a notion there was a
sentient castle in the "Pelmen the Powershaper" trilogy by...googles
frantically...Robert Don Hughes, that was him.  There's more of these things
around than I'd first thought!
