XCULP: The Great Reduction chronicles the drastic reduction of earth's human population and the efforts made by ad hoc social leaders to maintain water, electricity, phone service, Internet communication, and so on, in a world with very few people. Alexander Lee and Robert Braxton, who formerly worked at an Internet "backbone" facility, take charge of the social structures on the colony they formed on Santa Catalina Island, off the coast of Los Angeles, California.

XCULP: The Great Procreation, volume two in the XCULP series, examines the moral, ethical, and legal changes necessary to promote rapid population growth. The age of consent is reduced, pregnancy is considered a patriotic accomplishment, and most children (all twin sets) are raised by the community. Some young women choose to become surrogates on a baby-factory ship that travels the globe, bringing children to remote colonies. The twin girls from the first book, Jocelyn and Jessica, volunteer to serve on a so-called "Community Building" vessel.
