Greg, I thought you might be amused by this, and maybe know about it. One of the first season Star Trek episodes, which I found looking for another a little bit later which I have a good deal of appreciation for, Darmok.
The synopsis is not exactly like another book we know of, but then there is 'The Guardian'. Interesting, don't you think?
I still often think of Mirsky. You created someone very real, there -- and then.... Quite one of those experiences, and thank you.

That's one of my favorite episodes of classic STAR TREK. Scripted of course by Harlan Ellison, who got a Hugo for this episode--but whose original screenplay was a bit heavier on drug use than the networks and producers wanted. Harlan just this week very kindly phoned to tell me how much he enjoyed my own CITY. His Guardian does indeed seem to have access to a very large library! I wonder if it's acquainted with Polybiblios?

Harlan Ellison liked?!?!?!!!!!!!
That's a major feather in CITY's cap!
I hadn't thought of CITY ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER regarding your book...but I had recently viewed the remastered episode of ALL OUR YESTERDAYS, the penultimate episode of the Original series...with a world facing it's own end and escaping into the past.
And written by a Librarian
While doing research on that episode found that there had been TOS fiction with cross overs on Harlan's episode.
Wow...sorry...I'm still super jazzed for you that Harlan Ellison liked CITY AT THE END OF TIME.
Best news I've had all day.

The librarian in "All Our Yesterdays" is named "Mr. Atoz." A to Z...cute.
