And it’s kind of a challenge– you see, there are no men in it. Not one.
It’s science fiction (big surprise). The story is based on a traditional male-fantasy of a galaxy populated entirely by women. Sure, it sounds like the old Saturday Night Live skit starring Kirstie Alley about the “women with eyes on their breasts”– but it’s really more complicated than that, as the story will indicate as it goes along.
You see, I’ve always been fascinated by a world run by women. Men have had their shot, and their reign has largely been dominated by warfare, violence and stupidity. What if women ran the game?
For reasons to be explained in the story as it unfolds, what if the males of alien species throughout the galaxy were hyper-aggressive and violent, and the only way that females of those species were able to survive to reach the stars was that they had to eradicate their sexual counterparts?
That is the initial premise of the story, and I don’t want to spoil things by disclosing anything more; but what if such creatures discovered the Earth– a planet where (for undisclosed reasons) males have not been eliminated by a relatively less aggressive female gender?
Just thinking out loud while I write a book (books, actually) that have been unfolding in my mind for about 10 years now.
Stay tuned– I hope to publish book one in about a year.
Hound me and try to hold me to that timeline.
