Dear Friends and Naztehr,
An editorial is where you put things you can't find room for elsewhere. This is an editorial.

First off, you probably noticed that Jacqueline Lichtenberg owns the legal copyright to AMBROV
ZEOR. This means that she owns all material not previously copyrighted printed in these pages,
even if it's your own pet theory. We arranged things this way for all-around legal protection, as we
don't want an y one to g et 5 ued. Jacqueline can't sue you for writing about her Simes and Gens,
and if she likes your ideas so much that they end up in a pro Sime story, you can‘t sue her either.
But the nice thing is that the Sime universe is a living one, subject to change, and through AZ you
readers will be able to affect Jacqueline's view of it and her writing.

Our general policy in AZ will be to present Sime-oriented letters and comments and to stim-
ulate discussion on these and other related ST and SF topics. (Is there any topic in the universe‘not
related to the Simes? JL) We’ll also try to answer special questions and provide more infomation
on whatever about HOZ or l_J_r_1_t_r_3 Zeor. Forever may be bugging you. We would be interested in
seeing any Sime fanfictio-n, poetry or artwork you would care to submit. Our main emphasis, we
hope, will be letters from you. Please write them; the more you write, the less you have to read
our stuff. You might know that Jacqueline is terrifically busy with Unto and lots more, so it might
be better if you wrote to one of us. If you want to do artwork for us, it would be a good idea to
write to Lisa Waters for diagrams of Sime arms so that the tentacles will be fairly consistent
throughout. .

Jacqueline still has some hardcover copies of House 93253 which she personally autographs to
the buyer. Price is $6. 50 which includes postage and padded mailer. Not so incidently, HOZ has
been selected by Pocket Books for paperback release late in 1977. When it comes out, The Sectuib
will also have copies of that. More details will follow as soon as we find out anything. Doubleday
hopes to have Unto from her by January of 1977 for release later that year. She has also sold a
non-Sime story (called ”Recompense") to Galileo Magazine. It will appear in the December issue.
(Galileo's address is: Avenue Victor Hugo, 339 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02115.)

AMBROV ZEOR could use some volunteers out there for various projects we have in mind. We
need typists and artists. More important, we'd be interested if some of you out there would write
fuller biographies of some of the various people in the Sime universe. (See ”The Succession in Zeor"
and "Unto Zeor, Forever" in this issue.) And Stella Nemeth's letter, among others, has raised the
question of what Gens need Simes for. Well, some Gens produce so much selyn that they suffer from
a condition called "underdraw", a condition which plays an important part in Unto , and they must do-
nate often or be poisoned by their own selyn. But that's rare. Does anyone have other ideas to share?

Our next edition should be out sometime in the fall, maybe October, and will include more on Unto,
probably more on Simelan, and an article on donor proficiency ratings. We are also thinking, if there
3. is enough interest, of putting out a one-shot volume of fiction. Send a SASE to Lisa if you think that
this would be a good idea. Publication will depend on what kind of reaction we get and what you'd be
willing to pay for such a volume, not to mention how many people we can get to help type.

As an added bonus -- and to convince you that we're all crazy here -- the following are two exam-
ples of what editing and publishing can do to the human brain.

How does a Runzi go afoot?l WALKZI

What could you call the confinement
methods in the Raider Camp? ANDLE BARS

Don't say we didn't warn you!
