A century after civilization fell in a day and a night of tectonic cataclysm, scattered communities have regained a fraction of what humanity lost on that Day of Destruction. One such is the Duchy of Hampshire on the southern tip of England.
Hampshire is at war with the Califat de Normandie.
It's not on to Oh Michael McCollum No this because Eurabia does not appear to be inconsistent with the antagonists of his early fiction; Mexico, for example, picks on poor America in "Duty, Honor, Planet" and in Life Probe, it's a unified Africa getting all Kaiser Wilhelmy (1).
1: Although, and I mean this in all seriousness, points for having united Africa as a rising if somewhat counter-productively ambitious power: McCollum is an Analog writer and Mack Reyold's North Africa series aside, Analog wasn't known for its progressive views on the potential of your non-Western sorts.

Just finished "I Put My Blue Genes On" by Orson Scott Card. Good story. But it reminded me that all your stories have one major fault. They are racist by implication and by supposition. They ignore the possibility that Japanese, Chinese, Indians, Arabs, Ethiopians etc. might found civilizations in the stars. Card at least mentioned the Chinese (only to explain briefly that they had all been wiped out) to concentrate on the real world beaters of 2810 A.D. -- the Americans (granted they came from Hawaii), the Russians, and the Brazilians. Western civilization all. Most of your stories just ignore the existence of Earth's other races. Even a story about a planet peopled with the descendants of Japanese space explorers (Donald Kingsbury's excellent "Shipwright") feels it necessary to explain that this is an out-of-the-way, backward planet and that real interstellar civilization is white. Hope that in the future your writers will come to accept the fact that Nigerians as well as WASPs are star bound.

Why is there no science fiction written by Eastern authors? (Assuming Russia and Japan are Western nations.) Because Eastern cultures are a-scientific. They will get to the stars aboard Western ships -- no matter who builds them.
