The Pornography Wars
I have now completed the first draft of my latest Sci-fi novel – The Pornography Wars.
This novel started as an idea I had fifty years ago. I wrote a Sci-fi novel called Pornographic Syndromes. It was based on the notion that the Earth was being used as an Alien film set to record a pornographic soap opera. We, and all our history, were directed by aliens for mass consumption.
A year ago I read that novel and decided that it was not very good – not surprising really – it was one of my very earliest attempts. I had the idea of rewriting it.
What followed was not exactly a rewrite. It turned into a completely different book with a different story and a different ending. As often happens (no matter how much you do a detailed plot) the characters came to life and began to rewrite events.
I now have something completely different to that intended.
The first draft is 50,000 words. I am aware of certain shortfalls in the plot, characterisation and details. It is raw. I shall allow it to sit for a while in order to gain objectivity (not too long though or I would not remember it all) and then I shall carry out the first rewrite. By the time I complete that I would hope to be up to around 70,000 words.
After that I shall reread and start the process of editing.
By the time it is finished I will have given it a few edits.
If anybody would like to act as an early reader (to help me with the rewrite) just drop me a line!

European history defines porn.
Definition – Pornography (often shortened to porn) is the portrayal of sexual subject matter for the exclusive purpose of sexual arousal.
I’, not sure how this has anything to do with European history. Applies universally as far as I can see. Different cultures might view pornography differently of course – positively or negatively.
Europeans – know sexual deviants.
So do Jews. There are sexual deviants everywhere (depending on your definition).
Wow you said something utterly profound … NOT.
You’re not a sexual deviant are you Moshe. A deviant and a fascist! What a combination.
Early humans in Europe found to have close lineage with Neanderthals
Not quite so close a small percentage of our DNA.
