Where Sime meets Gen, Creativity Happens
|As differentiation into male and female invigorated species, the
differentiation of male and female "genders" into Sime and Gen
"larities" strengthens human
creativity. The principle? At the interface where opposite
polarities meet, creative energy is unleashed in vast quantity.

About the Sime~Gen Fictional Universe
Gerald Jonas, the New York Times Science Fiction Book Reviewer,
wrote in the January 23rd, 1983 New York Times Book Review column by Gerald Jonas:
"When I read the first novel in the Sime/Gen series - ''House of Zeor,'' published in
1974 - I had trouble deciding whether it was science fiction as pornography or science
fiction as soap opera. On reading ''Channel's Destiny,'' the fifth and latest novel to
draw on the Sime/Gen background, I realized that these books combine some of the qualities
of both porn and the soaps - and, through a curious synergy, it is precisely this mix
of genres that makes them so satisfying as science fiction."
Sime~Gen Inc. and the
WorldCrafters Guild focus on learning to mix genres to
create new ones.
Sime~Gen is presented here as an example of a "Crafted World" that allows for
readers to tell their own stories within that framework -- or to challenge the framework
itself. Every professional novel book has a Relationship driven plot, and most are action stories
pivoted around a love story featuring romance, love and/or committment. Jacqueline
Lichtenberg calls this odd
"Soap/ Porn/ Romance/ Action/ Mystery /Intrigue /Suspense /Fantasy/ SF" mixed genre
It has become the cutting edge of fictional development today. Jacqueline
Lichtenberg and Jean Lorrah have identified this specific type of literature as
a Plot Archetype.
