From the near future, as the science of genetics fulfils its potential, comes the story of a world where genetically transmitted diseases are being eliminated; where tedious manual labour is being transferred to "sims", genetically engineered chimps who occupy a grey zone between simian and human.
Just a few hundred genes separate humans from chimpanzees. Imagine someone altering the chimp genome, splicing in human genes to increase the size of the cranium, reduce the amount of body hair, enable speech. What sort of creature would result? SIMS takes place in the very near future, when the science of genetics is fulfilling its vaunted potential. It's a world where genetically transmitted diseases are being eliminated. A world where dangerous of boring manual labour is being transferred to "sims", genetically altered chimps who occupy a gray zone between simian and human.
