“Fast-moving plot and skillful characterization,” the Science Fiction Studies journal wrote about my book, “War Of The Sexes.” It is now translated into English, adapted, updated and renamed as “Sex War One.” Publication date is set for December 15. Short description: Following a nuclear holocaust, the only survivals of the human race exist in a retro-style, yet technically advanced underground-colony. Males and females live in complete harmony and equality, but traditional marriages and families no longer exist, replaced by communal living with a fixed amount of babies being born periodically in a sophisticated birth-laboratory. Love is dead – or so they assume – substituted by an abundant of unemotional, free-for-all sex. But then something goes terribly wrong: a different female baby is mistakenly born in the lab, with a different shape and color from the regular, normal children. This catalyst induces two unforeseen, starkly opposing consequences: the return of love and affection on the one hand, and the dictatorial rule of women over men on the other. Ultimately, the oppression of the males leads to a revolt, and eventually to a full-scale war between the sexes, with the survival of the human race again at stake. “This book unifies within it the principles of major Science-Fiction literature. Damron deals very seriously with the moral issues of the future, while critiquing the present.”–Dan Omer, This World Published originally in Hebrew in 1982 by Domino Press, and praised at the time as the “best of all” Israeli Sci-fi literature by the Science Fiction Studies journal.
