Embedding Themselves In The Past
Anderson could have written a historical novel featuring a supporting character whom readers of his other works would recognize as an embedded time traveler. Imagine a future history series and a historical fiction series bound together by time travel. The nearest approach to this is Julian May's Pliocene Exile Tetralogy and Galactic Milieu Trilogy which are bound together by a contemporary sf novel and also by time travel. Anderson locates his Maurai future history as one of the periods covered by his time travel novel, There Will Be Time. But I would really have liked to have seen some known Time Patrol agents showing up in one of Anderson's historical novels.
