More About the Author

I'm a professional sf/f writer, and a Life Member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc. ( I'm also a member of EPIC, The Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition, and Backlist eBooks, a group of widely published writers presenting their own previously published work in eBook format.

My first novel, House of Zeor, first of the Sime~Gen novels, was published in hc in 1974 and remained continually in print for 20 years.

Today the series has been picked up by Wildside Press, Borgo imprint, re-issued as both e-book in a wide variety of formats including Kindle, and as Print on Demand and audiobook.

There are now 12 volumes in the Sime~Gen Universe, and Loreful is developing an RPG episodic videogame. See Ambrov X on Facebook.

Like Star Trek fandom, Sime~Gen fandom has produced more fanfiction than ever was professionally published -- and RPG's and LARPS and board games, and hand-crafts, and art, and poetry - and even a professionally written and recorded song.

My works in other universes are likewise coming in new formats, and brand new novels will be added through Wildside Press.

Watch for audiobook versions via which will appear here on Amazon. The first of my novels to be recorded as an audiobook is Molt Brother, which has a direct sequel City of a Million Legends. Both those are newly available as e-books on Kindle and other formats, as well as in paper.

A vampire-romance, Those of My Blood and its sequel Dreamspy are available in paper again, at regular not collector's prices, right here on Amazon.

After selling several Sime~Gen novels to hardcover, I was joined by Jean Lorrah (author of many Trek novels, as well as her own series of fantasy novels, Savage Empire). Jean's first novel was our Sime~Gen collaboration titled First Channel. We are now co-owners of Sime~Gen Inc. which owns

I'm the originator of the term Intimate Adventure, quoted in Publisher's Weekly. All my novels belong to the Intimate Adventure genre, as do those of Jean Lorrah.

I am the sf/f book reviewer for The Monthly Aspectarian and my column is archived on There you'll find a link to an article showing the Star Trek Connection behind everything to do with Sime~Gen and

The first two columns have an in-depth definition of Intimate Adventure with examples by many authors across many fields. Intimate Adventure is the Hidden Genre -- everyone loves it, nobody (especially publishers) knows it exists.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I picked up the first Sime-Gen book in 1973 it really spoke to me. Despite the cover artwork, it wasn't just some slashy teen sci-fi popcorn paperback. Every book spoke to me of the differences in the human condition, and the struggle to come to terms with those differences. The parallels it drew... the Simes versus the Gens. Predator & prey. Of how there could be a peaceful solution to the often violent clash of the usual power-struggles. The erotic undercurrent of need, the surprise of finding compassion & understanding where there's usually fear & hatred... and the all-too often fatal consequences of prejudice. These were issues then and now, and this book talked about them intelligently in a science-fiction setting. I see the present civil-rights struggles of GLBT people today reflected in the pages of the Sime-Gen series. And I can't wait to share my copies of those wonderful books with my own daughter.
