What is Sime~Gen? For those of you who are reading this book without previous experience of this expansive universe here is a brief introduction:


Sime~Gen is a series of novels written by Jacqueline Lichtenberg and Jean Lorrah. It is set in a future where humans have mutated into two subspecies. Simes, who go through a brief but dramatic change at puberty and Gens, whose change, while just as dramatic, is invisible to the naked eye.


The outward sign of the Simes' change is development of tentacles on their forearms, four strong and flexible "handling" tentacles and two smaller tentacles just for selyn transfer, called "laterals." Gens produce life energy called "selyn" which Simes require once a month to live. Unfortunately, the result in obtaining this energy is usually the death of the Gen.


This physical transformation happens just prior to puberty. There is no way of knowing, before that, if a person will be Sime or Gen.


At the chronological beginning of the published novels by Jacqueline, and Jean, a second mutation of Sime emerges. These "channels" are able to keep Simes from Killing Gens, thus saving mankind from self-annihilation. The stories that you find here, and the published books by Jacqueline Lichtenberg and Jean Lorrah, explore the role of these new Simes, and the Gens who live side by side with them as humankind struggles to become one again.

    The Farris Channel: Sime~Gen, Book Twelve

    The multi-generation saga of the founding of the legendary House of Zeor, that began with Rimon Farris's story in First Channel (Sime~Gen, Book Three), continued with the story of Rimon's son, Zeth Farris, Channel's Destiny (Sime~Gen, Book Five), now culminates with the story of Zeth's son, Del Rimon Farris, in The Farris Channel (Sime~Gen, Book Twelve). The Sime~Gen Series is the story of the House of Zeor, an institution that spans thousands of years and shapes human future history. The power behind its longevity and success is the love of two Souls who meet lifetime after lifetime, in tragedy and triumph, amidst an ever-growing cadre of friends, enemies, and supporters. But like real people everywhere, few of these Souls have any inkling of what they did to deserve their fates--or what to do to make things better. The greatest among them can only guess--and pay the price for their actions. Here is the price that Del Rimon Farris pays to convey his vision to his future descendants. A fantastic new entry in a bestselling science-fantasy series!

    A Change of Tactics: A Sime~Gen Novel: Clear Spring Chronicles #1

    Den Milnan, a Tecton Donor, accompanies his cousin, channel Rital Madz, to an experimental Sime Center in the town of Clear Springs, deep in hostile Gen Territory. Rital plans to offer selyn technology to the Gens in trade for selyn, the energy that only Gens can produce. Selyn is the fuel that could power a new revival of civilization, as fossil fuels did for humanity of the 19th and 20th centuries. Den Milnan dreams of turning his horse-and-buggy existence into a world of rapid transportation with his design for heavier than air flight. In Clear Springs, an implacable enemy awaits them, determined to stop selyn collection by fanning old fears of killer Simes. Unless Den can find a way to calm those fears, his dream of powered flight will never be realized.

Autore

Jacqueline Lichtenberg

An active science fiction fan since 7th Grade, I created the Sime~Gen Universe when I was 10-15 years old. When I was 25 and a new mother, I sold the first story to be published written in this universe. It is Operation High Time, and was bought by Fred Pohl, who later also bought my first non-fiction book, Star Trek Lives! I was a Star Trek fan before there was a Star Trek fandom because Star Trek flung my own visions onto the TV Screen.
