comment Will science fiction as a genre ever go the way of the western?
While people still wonder what if? I think there will be a place for some form of SF. As @sjl says, sub-genres (like the western in terms of historical novels) will change, but some forms of these will remain. When we stop asking what if? then the human race will be dead.

comment In a “learn to do X” book, should a section review come before the quiz / exercises or after?
+2 for the "don't hide" comment and the "Oh no, not another c# book". Unfortunately ( or not ) I can only vote up once.

comment Does this writing create emotion in the reader?
@Aerovistae But the point is that it often seems like the pits of Hell when you have just woken up. that is my point. Anyhow, it was not intended as finished idea, just a concept to pursue.

comment Is the opening of this story intriguing, “dark” and smooth?
Without doubt, trying to write in a non-native language is worthy of serious kudos. I have enough trouble in my native language.

@LaurenIpsum If I had been drinking coffee, I would have spat it over my screen. Says a follower of such a religion.

comment Ways for main character to influence world following their death
Having seen your responses to comments, and the IF mode you are looking for, option 2 would be my choice, where information or suggestions are left by the character, which can then be found as required (or not, if the reader makes bad decisions)

comment Using today's moral compass in fantasy
I suppose that this works if the focus of the story is the moral interaction. I read the OP as wanting to know how to interact with a morally depraved society (by modern standards) without this being the focus of the story. But a +1 for the importance of proper research into historical novels.
