There are also several tie-in novels, authored by the Miller brothers themselves[[note]]Well... it should be noted that while the by lines say Rand (and Robyn, for the first one) Miller ''with'' David Wingrove, it would be more accurate to say that the novels were written by David Wingrove under the Millers' supervision. The fact that by the third book Cyan was too busy with Riven to really reign him in is something of a sore spot among the fans[[/note]]. ''Myst: The Book of Atrus'' tells the story of Atrus's early life with his grandmother Anna and his father Gehn. ''Myst: The Book of Ti'ana'' tells the story of the downfall of the D'ni (so this takes place before the Book of Atrus). ''Myst: The Book of D'ni'' tells of Atrus's attempts to find D'ni survivors and rebuild the D'ni civilization. And finally, ''Myst: The Book of Marrim'', which seems to be permanently mired in DevelopmentHell, though a preview chapter was released with the European Special Edition of Myst V. A fan-produced webcomic adaptation of ''The Book of Atrus'' is in progress [[http://mystcomic.smackjeeves.com/comics/ here]].

** A reoccurring theme throughout the series in general. Most Myst villains have shades of this due to the potentially corrupting nature of the Art.

* FantasticRacism: The D'ni and related link-building civilizations tend to look down on the native people of the Ages they visit who don't have the same capability, much as we might tend to disdain cultures who never developed metallurgy. When they first encountered Ti'ana, most assumed she would be an inept and/or violent savage, despite knowing very little of the surface conditions. They also disfavor breeding between D'ni and other races, making Aitrus and Ti'ana's marriage somewhat turbulent. [[spoiler: The Terahnee were far worse, enslaving vast numbers of people without need because they thought it was the proper order of things]], but even the D'ni practiced slavery from time to time, as evidenced by Teledahn and Noloben.
