I started writing the space opera I wanted to read—something more hopeful/utopian without multiple weapons and explosions. Then I found Becky Chambers had already written the fabulous Wayfarers series so yay, I'm not alone.

Elizabeth Gilbert's wonderful novel The Signature of All Things describes simultaneous creation by exploring the Darwin theories you mention.

This is also the blog I didn't get around to writing. Smile face.
