In 1991-1992 I wrote a book dealing with the same subject and came to the same conclusions. I tried to interest some publishers in Israel (I write in Hebrew) and, since I was rejected for all the wrong reasons, I put it aside just to learn, ten years later, that a more persistent author overcame the publisher's opinion.
I learned about the Red Queen only when an Australian resarcher (Dr. Orly Lacham-Kaplan) became famous for a method in which no male sperm is needed for fertilization. When I told her about my book she told me about Dirk Draulans's book which, according to her, was the same book as mine.
I am not acusing anybody of plagiarism, but I am afraid that it is too late for me now to try and publish something that has already been published.
Since then I made a few changes in the novel, returned the men to life and spread love and hope in the miserable world I had built. The reason I rank the Red Queen only 1 star is that the author failed to make those corrections.
