I don't think you're going to be too desolate with UNTO ZEOR, FOREVER. Though
the characters aren't the same, a Farris is a Farris and a natural donor is a natural
donor in any century. Their personal problems are different. People who cope with
future shock are different from people who live on the frontier. But they're just as

And you will learn the story of Hugh and Rior, even more of it than Hugh lived to see,
because it's part of the historical background. Consider if Hugh were a woman for
Klyd to be interested in. Well, in UNTO, one of Hugh's descendents, likewise a natural
donor like Hugh, but with Farris blood too, gets involved with Digen Farris, Sectuib

in Zeor.

As for the notion of Hugh's going through changeover —- that's weird. A Gen is a Gen
is a Gen and there's nothing that can be done about it. But yes, Hugh is a new sort ‘of
mutation, a Natural Donor, the first of the breed to yet be identified.

I'd love to discuss Hugh's feeling that he ought to have tentacles. It's the tip of one of
those famous Lichtenberg icebergs that are so famous in ST fandom.

I'd love to get into the whole homosexuality thing. I think I've almost got it whipped

into UNTO -- I have to devise a way to make it dramatically clear that the emotional
relationships between transfer partners are not sexual in connotation, but can sometimes
be more powerful than sex even. (Sex is a pleasure that takes a backseat to raw survival
in the biology life processes list.)

. \ ,

Oh, and UNTO is told from the point of view-of Digen Farris, so we see the world
through Sime eyes this time. It should make rereading HoZ into a whole new adventure
once people understand what really was going .on-inside Klyd.
