world, our world, in the far distant future. Humanity has mutated
into two different races. There are the GENS or generators of SELYN
the energy of life. Their bodies produce more selyn than they
require to live. Then there are the SIMES. They require SELYN to
live, but their bodies don't produce it. The only way they can
obtain SELYN is from a GEN, which can kill the GEN. Can humanity
survive under these conditions?
Your Gateway to Sime~Gen® Fandom
This is the premise behind the Sime~Gen universe, created by
Jacqueline Lichtenberg. For almost 30 years these novels have
captured the imaginations of men and women of all ages. They have
banded together, created beautiful art, written wonderful stories
and novels, published fanzines, formed mini-clubs known as
Householdings, and more recently have invaded the internet, to
create what we lovingly call the Virtual Tecton.
* Cooperative Fiction is a unique art form, based on logs from on-line
role-playing sessions, edited into a format resembling a screenplay.
Indeed, readers have suggested that each log section could turn into an
enjoyable episode for a TV series.
