I wrote and published this sci fi short story a few years ago (under a different title) when the human population was only 7.4 billion:
(1st published 4th April 2017)
It is now 8 billion.
Our cultural norms and the Protestant Ethic are causing the extinction of all life.
I wrote this as social satire
and sympathetic magic
I realize my writing style doesn’t fit what people expect
I started writing a prequel where humans were grown and harvested as livestock by the “gods” –keep losing my motivation but may finish it before I die
In the real world I am becoming more optimistic as there are so many thinking caring people
