American Dreams and Dynamic Wombs, and Other Stories

Today saw the unlimited-edition release of two new stories from me. The first reviews American Dreams in China, a drama that closely resembles The Social Network and has become a massive hit in the Middle Kingdom. The message: Copyright theft in the cause of China is no vice! And the second story takes you through a fertile discussion of birth rates that captivated a weekend conference of social conservatives.
