It's hard to deny food, shelter and a standard of living to people, though. A follow-up: what are some steps you think could be taken to mitigate this while improving quality of life for Africans?

Outlander is an 80s soft scifi/fantasy novel with romance elements which reminds me a lot of when you tried to do Pern.

  1. What draws you in particular to these scifi series that skew a little more female than most?

  2. Do you ever think about going back to Pern and finishing that project?

Not related, but man, pork is the worst if you quit eating it or develop a reaction. I started keeping kosher, and then a few years later went to Italy and couldn't figure out why I kept getting ill, and it turns out they even make the bread with lard. Go figure.

So anyway: if you like pork, never go off it even for a few years.

Thanks for the response. I really enjoy your female characters (Kira! Starbuck!) so that's an awesome answer.

I suspect you might be right about Pern. :S
