Hugo Award-winning author C.J. Cherryh has written over 50 books since
1976. She is known for her ability to create believable worlds and rich
complex characters. She possesses an incredible versatility with novels
ranging from small, intimate, character-driven tales to galaxy-wide epics
that span multiple generations; from pre-Christian Russia to space exploration;
from high fantasy to explorative science fiction. This site was created
so that her fans could shamelessly
over her like idiots .
The name Shejidan comes
from her Foreigner universe novels. They feature an alien race called
the Atevi. Shejidan (pronounced: SHEH zhee dahn) is the capitol of
the Western Association, the largest "nation" of the atevi. The atevi are
an species whose loyalties center on individuals, not geographical borders,
and whose laws sanction registered assassination as a means to keep the
peace. They do not experience the same emotions as humans. They are
of a species "which has fourteen words for betrayal and not a single word
for love". They are, not surprisingly, the favorite species of this
webmaster and of several regulars at the message boards.
