The saga of humanity's destiny...
Following a cataclysm, humanity has been divided into two
mutant forms: the Simes and the Gens. Gens consider
themselves to be the true humans, with little outward
change, but their bodies produce selyn, an energy that
Simes can't live without. The stronger and faster Simes
develop the means to extract selyn from the Gens, a method
that kills the Gen in the process. Gen communities are
raided by Simes, the Gens rounded up and held in pens for
Simes to use when needed. This is the saga of how these two
disparate peoples learn to live as one.
Sime~Gen: The Unity Trilogy presents three classic novels
of the future struggle of humanity:
In House of Zeor by Jacqueline Lichtenberg, Hugh Valleroy,
a Gen, must rescue the woman he loves from Sime raiders. To
do so, he must learn to cooperate with and trust a renegade
Sime, leader of the infamous House of Zeor.
In Ambrov Keon by Jean Lorrah, Risa Tigue, having just
witnessed her father's death in a hurricane, stumbles upon
a Gen man who saves her life and discovers that she is much
more than what she seems. Can she admit the truth of this
In Zelerod's Doom by Lichtenberg and Lorrah, Gen numbers
are dwindling, which spells the end of Simes as well. As
Gens rise up to fight back against the tyranny of the
Simes, the two must find a way to live together or both
will be destroyed.
Sime~Gen: The Unity Trilogy kicks off a massive six-book
series, featuring the reprints of all eight classic
Sime~Gen novels as well as brand new novels and short
stories. The Unity Trilogy will be followed in July of 2004
with the first new Sime~Gen novel in over 20 years, To Kiss
or to Kill by Jean Lorrah!
