Anslem?

Has any consideration ever been given to someone writing Anslem? Basically, similar how The Needs of the Many was written as if "Jake Sisko himself" wrote it? It would be a "real" novel, but written by a "fictional" character.

Hope that makes sense....

The Millennium novels have "excerpts" from Anslem in them.

I loved those quotes. They were very well done, and it was very moving when they revealed what "Anslem" means. The Millennium books were really good.

Re: Anslem?

Gah, I read the Millenium books but I have no memory of Anselm quotes. I'll have to go back and have a look. Any hints as to which books they are in?

Millenium was a great read even if I was so confused about time by the end of it I had to stop trying to keep it all in place. I do remember they had great characterizations and that the story had an excellent pace.

Re: Anslem?

I only ever had the Millennium omnibus, so I'm not sure exactly the books that the Anslem. A quick Amazon.com "Search inside" yielded this:

http://www.amazon.com/Millennium-Omn...der_0743442490

I too really liked Millennium, but it was a bit mind boggling at times. I really got a kick out of playing The Fallen which was a limited version of the series. I've recently went back to the game and discovered the DS9 Technical Manual was used quite a bit by the developers.

There's a different passage from Anslem at the start of each of the three books...or each of the 3 sections of the omnibus.
