A report from the latest book tour - and a live transcript from the evening event in Bremen!
This is incredible. Thank you so much for sharing it. As I was reading, when you mentioned answers from science fiction, I could only suddenly think of Orwell's 1984 and the way you couldn't say "bad". Except it's "gay" now. There's no meta there. Not. Anyway, brilliant as always.
Regarding the draft: Who would be left fighting in Ukraine if staying was voluntary for men as well? What factor, other than gender, could be a better criteria here... BMI? Everyone without children? Not sure that would be more "fair", but I say staying being more optional for the group of people more likely to be raped before killed is fair enough. And it´s not like there aren`t female soldiers in the UA army and many women haven`t chosen to stay and fight nonetheless.
I'm eager for this to get to my local bookstore! (It's on order...) BTW Laurie, I just got dinged by Patreon who still want me to pay my sub over there. You might want to check if they have been collecting money for you!
