eMac, meet G3

[AncientMacintoshFilter] Is there a way to get an eMac to fileshare with a G3 (blue-and-white tower)? In the good old days, I would have whipped out an AppleTalk cable and called it done, but the eMac does not have an AppleTalk port.

The eMac is running OS 10.4.11, so, in theory, AppleTalk is still supported. I have firewire, ethernet, and USB ports available on both machines. My google-fu in this case has been google-FEH, and a phone conversation with the local mac dealer was not exactly confidence-inspiring. Currently, I'm transferring stuff with a thumb drive, but would love a solution that is less of a PITA. Thanks!
