The Sime/Gen books were one of the first series of books I ever read that weren't children's books. I stumbled across "House of Zeor" at the age of 10 (1977, a few years after it came out in 1974) and was instantly hooked. I have (I think) the whole series, and I re-read them all every few years; they are some of my favorite comfort reading. The allegory for the struggle of human rights in those books has shaped a great deal of the way I think as an adult. Thank you for writing them.
