Clear Springs Chronicles #1 BOOK Fourteen in the Sime~Gen Universe, by Mary Lou Mendum, Jacqueline Lichtenberg and Jean Lorrah
It has taken millennia for the Simes and Gens to find a way to survive without routinely destroying one another, and human civilization is once again rising above the level of mere survival. But the fuels of the first industrial revolution were exhausted by the Ancients, and the new fuel is selyn: plentiful, clean, and endlessly renewable
Den Milnan, a Tecton Donor, accompanies his cousin, channel Rital Madz, to an experimental Sime Center in the town of Clear Springs, deep in hostile Gen Territory. Rital plans to offer selyn technology to the Gens in trade for selyn, the energy that only Gens can produce. Den dreams of turning his horse-and-buggy existence into a world of rapid transportation with his design for heavier than air flight.
Because selyn is produced by Gens--half the human race-- as a by-product of their metabolism, it.is the fuel that could power a new revival of civilization, as fossil fuels did for humanity of the 19th and 20th centuries. In Clear Springs, an implacable enemy awaits them, determined to stop selyn collection by fanning old fears of Killer Simes. Unless Den can find a way to calm those fears, his dream of powered flight will never be realized.
