Talking about Radicalized with the CBC: Privilege, atavism, techno-realism and seizing the means of information

The CBC's Ryan B Patrick interviewed me about my latest sf book, Radicalized and how the four novellas in it relate to struggles for liberation, racial justice, technological self-determination, inequality and a sustainable climate plan. Some of the stories in Radicalized are darker than the ones I've written in the past decade, reflecting my own anxiety (I call this my "Trump derangement syndrome book," and the stories were written to master my own concerns as the darkest timeline has only...

Questions regarding Kindle Voyage

I bought a Kindle Voyage in 2017 because my old PW (with jailbreak) started to act erratically. It seems its flash memory (?) got some dementia, so I am stuck with the Voyage now. The firmware is, it has never been updated or registered, no jailbreak. I upload books via PC/USB and calibre. While handling is ok I am missing one thing very much but do not know if I am simply a doofus, if the Kindle is not able to offer it or if the PW was only able to do it because there was a jailbre...

I bought it because so many people said it was great. So far the user manual is no help. Anyone know how to set the tap zones? The user manual says it is possible, but doesn't help me find the setting. Do I have to pay another 5.99 to get the pro version just for the tap zones?
