Tiberium Parchments

I love Dan Simmons' books. He has a flare for taking historic or philosophic content and wrapping them in superb fiction - from sci-fi to horror and adventure. 

One of his books, Children of the Night, great sci-fi based on Dracula. Or on Vlad Tepis rather. In it, throughout the story, he weaves in memories and thoughts told by Vlad himself, towards the end revealing that he is still there. Alive, more or less. 

I thought that would work well with Kane. Memories from distant past and historically significant eras. Told in retrospect by a leader trying to fulfill a plan, to bring the brotherhood out of hiding and shape it into a tool of... What? Humanity's salvation maybe.

And I wrote this short "memory" piece.
