About the Book:
is a brand new five book series of novellas set in F. Paul Wilson's monstrous new world!

Now enter the world of Sims...

Fifty genes separate humans from chimpanzees. Think about that. Out of thousands upon thousands of genes in both genomes, a mere fifty vary. And think about someone altering the chimp genome, splicing in human genes to increase the size of the cranium, reduce the amount of body hair, enlarge the frame. What sort of creature would result?

Sims takes place in a world exactly like our own, except that the science is perhaps twenty-five years ahead of what we presently know. A world in which most simple manual labor is done by sims genetically-altered chimps who occupy a gray-zone between simian and human. The Microsoft of this brave new world is SimGen, which owns the patent on the sim genome and leases the creatures worldwide.

Patrick Sullivan, a labor relations attorney of questionable ethics, is living the good life until he decides, on a whim, to see if he can make a few bucks by unionizing a group of sims. In so doing he sets in motion huge forces that will turn his world upside down. As everything he believes is revealed to be a lie, Patrick becomes a player in a violent, deadly unseen war to peel away the layers of conspiracy that shroud the monstrous secret of the sims, a secret SimGen and the power behind it will do anything to protect.
