One of things I love about playing Deus Ex is finding and reading everything that was created specifically for the game and the material from actual books. Personally, "Jacob's Shadow" is my favorite inclusion. Here is the website of the person who wrote all of the emails, newspapers, and books scattered throughout the game:

I highly recommend clicking this link and reading everything if you have already played and finished the game, otherwise you are just ruining one of the best gaming experiences ever.

Awesome! Thanks for posting this!
Great thread, BeorntheBear!

In Paris the building across from the entrance to the Catacombs has an office with a security terminal. It's login is, rzelazny, its password is shadowjack.

I HIGHLY recommend Roger Zelazny's, 'Jack of Shadows' along with 'A Night In The Lonesome October,' the first five books in his Amber Series and just about anything else Mr. Zelazny wrote.

Even his short stories are among some of the most imaginative and image-invoking work done in science-fiction and literature in general.
Nice find. No other game has been able to pull me into its world as much as Deus Ex can.
G.K. Chesterton's [url=http://www.cse.dmu.ac.uk/~mward/gkc/books/1695-h.htm]'The Man Who Was Thursday'[/url] is a real (and classic) book that also features prominently in the game.

Yeah - it's a short, but great book. A surreal spy adventure.

Um....why aren't these files in the extras for the game?

That would make one hell of a collector's edition bonus:
the books from a game, in hard back form.
A bartender in Hong Kong mentions a book called 'First and Last Men' by Olaf Stapledon, which is a real book. It recounts millennia of fictional future history. I've tried giving it a read, but unfortunately I personally found it very boring due to lack of overarching plot or characters.

You mean the one at the Old China Hand, right? I remember that.
Nice find man!
