DO FIM DAS UNIÕES DESDE A UNIÃO HAIJAC ATÉ AO FIM DO US OF A IN 1861 ..Hal Yarrow is a lowly joat linguist living in the oppressive Haijac Union, one of the major World powers in 3050 A.C. The Haijac Union is a puritan Theocracy based on a future religion founded by a prophet called Isaac Sigmen called Serialism , an offshoot of Judeochristian beliefs mixed with a pseudo-scientific temporal theory called Dunnology. Adherence to realist actions is a matter of life and death, as citizens are rated regularly in their morals and those who consistently slip are "sent to H". Yarrow, unfortunately, is prone to unreal thinking, and he's not helped by his wife Marie, a proper, frigid, passive-agressive Sigmenite who feels forced to rat out every minor unreality to their resident gapt Pornsen, a combination of confessor and political commisary. Eventually Yarrow's stubborn lack of specialization is his salvation, as he gets recruited (and thus saved from "H") for a top secret mission; be the resident linguist for a diplomatic expedition to Ozagen, the first inhabitable world found by the Haijac space program. Ozagen is populated by friendly, highly evolved sentient arthropods whose technological level is comparable to that of the early 20th century, derisively named wogglebugs (wogs for short) by the Haijacs; the expedition, though, is actually a genocidal mission who plans to kill the whole species using a Synthetic Plague. Wogs would join in extinction the other sentient species they used to share their planet with, a mammalian anthropoid astonishingly similar to humans. It is while exploring some ruins of these man-like aliens that Yarrow meets one mysterious girl that shouldn't be there, or even exist, who makes him feel for the first time what his Sturch-appointed wife never did. This and his growing friendship with Fobo, a wog psychologist, sends him into a downward spiral of unreality. This novel launched the career of Philip José Farmer, won an Hugo in 1953, it is often listed as a landmark in Science Fiction... and it pretty much stopped Farmer's professional writing career for the next decade, as it was a shining example of a book ahead of its time that no publisher in The Fifties would touch with a ten foot pole (in fact, it wasn't published in book form until 1961). The Lovers is credited with introducing Sex into Science Fiction beyond the Green-Skinned Space Babe, and mixing it with Religion, Politics, Psychology and Pulp, Farmer's favourite subjects. There's another novel by Farmer sharing the same setting, Day of Timestop (a.k.a. as Timestop or A Woman A Day), but it's not actually a sequel. The Lovers has shib examples of: A Taste of the Lash: The favoured disciplining tool of gapts and urielites (priests) is the scourge. Acceptable Break from Reality: The book's twist hinges on Ozagen evolution leading to an Human Alien, something highly unlikely made more so since Ozagen evolution took very different paths early on. Against My Religion Alien Lunch: Beetle juice, Exactly What It Says on the Tin. All There Is to Know About "The Crying Game": This book is mostly known for its Twist Ending, to the point that pretty much every SF history article and essay mentioning the book or Farmer's work in general gives it away. This wiki included. Alternate Calendar: 3050 A.C. becomes 550 A.S. for the Haijac Union. Arranged Marriage: Marriages are arranged by the Sturch through their gapts. Citizens can disagree, theoretically. As You Know: It is a tad weird having Fobo explain how the gapt system is structured to Yarrow..Haijac Union, one of the major World powers in 3050 A.C. The Haijac Union is a puritan Theocracy ...

  • Depopulation Bomb: Used by the Martian colonists in the past to wipe out most of Mankind on Earth, giving rise to the ethnic and political variety of the world of 3050 A.C. The Haijacs decide to borrow the idea to solve the Wog problem.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: A short conversation under the moonlight and Yarrow is out to risk his life for Jeannette.
  • Dystopia: The Haijac Union is an overbearing theocracy.
  • Dystopian Edict: Among many prohibitions and taboos, eating is given the same treatment as sex; people must wear special "eating hats" to cover their mouths and chew silently.
  • Ethical Slut: Jeannette, very much so.
  • Everyone Looks Sexier If French: Jeannette Rastignac is half French.
  • Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Corrupted French, though.
  • The Evils of Free Will: Stray from reality (Sigmen's path) too much and you'll be sent to "H" for the crime of hindering the coming of the Timestop, the day Sigmen will return and give every good sigmenite an universe to rule over. Oh, and everything bad that ever happens to you is your fault for straying off the real path.
  • Fat Bastard: Pornsen.
