    1. Three of the stories, “Juliette” by Claude F. Cheinisse, “The Vana” by Alain Dorémeiux, and “The Chain of Love” by Catherine Cliff, involve emotional or physical intimacy between a human and non-human, further complicated by the fact that, in all three stories, one of the participants in the relationship is in some way the property of the other. Perhaps not coincidentally, this human / non-human intimacy / ownership theme was also prominent in one of the few other non-Verne works of [...]


    2. First things first: the cover of my edition promises a collection full of outrageous continental futuristic erotica. If that's what you're after, look elsewhere. Only a couple of the 13 stories deal in any way with sexual relationships, and neither are especially titillating.What we get instead is a baker's dozen of strange, evocative, often surreal but always beautifully written tales, many dealing with the hypnotic beauty of alien worlds and experiences. The three stories by Charles Henneberg [...]

Hoolimata loo vanusest siiani üsnagi mõjuv ja karm tekst. Üks kogumiku lmemikuidOlivia - Mehest kes sünnib ja sureb aina uuesti ja uuesti ainukese eesmärgiga ühele tibile meeldida. Ma ei oska enam tagantjärgi isegi öelda kas meeldis või ei, midagi siin tekstis nagu oli.The notaru and the conspiracy - Ajaränd kui vahend väik [...]

    5. Closer to 3.5 stars, really. A mix of some fairly average and some very good short stories from authors who did not find much success in English-speaking countries. As such, it's a good way to introduce a reader to some authors, often ones with a different slant on the science fiction story. (Nathalie) Charles Henneberg's meeting of historical romance and science fiction in particular works well, as do three "subtle alien invasion" tales, by Klein, Veillot, and Cliff respectively. For the most p [...]


    6. This short-story collection is an excellent sampler of (mostly late 1950's) science fiction from France. The quality of the writing -- and just as critically, the quality of the translations -- is high; and the stories -- almost all of them character driven, and most of them about love (albeit, oftentimes strange, alien love) -- hold the reader's interest. In the year 2016 one might wonder if the stories are dated; let's just say this: The first story in this book is about a man's relationship w [...]
