    "Rastignac the Devil" is a science fiction novel about the world in the 22nd century by Philip Jose Farmer. Excerpt: After the Apocalyptic War, the decimated remnants of the French huddled in the Loire Valley were gradually squeezed between two new and growing nations. The Colossus to the north was unfriendly and obviously intended to absorb the little New France. The Colossus to the south was friendly and offered to take the weak state into its confederation of republics as a full partner.

    Le roman "Les Amants étrangers", publié en 1961, tire son origine d'une nouvelle publiée en août 1952 dans la revue "Startling Stories". Il s'agissait du premier essai - et du premier chef-d'œuvre de Philip José Farmer -, qui par son thème audacieux lié à la sexualité fit forte sensation auprès des lecteurs du genre. Histoire d'amour entre un homme en rupture avec l'humanité et une extraterrestre en exil, "Les amants étrangers" met en scène une expédition humaine sur une planète où règnent des conditions de vie proches de la Terre.
