Read full description of the books:Quel rapport peut-il avoir entre un chevalier médiéval livrant un duel au crépuscule, un attentat dans un fast-food, deux enfants errant dans une ville morte au bord d'un astroport désaffecté, un mort voué au rôle d'ange exterminateur et la révolte des minorités opprimées des U.S.A.? Aucun, peut-être. Mais alors, d'où provient ce serpent qui écrase dans ses anneaux le corps pantelant des Etats-Unis?
Read information about the authorRoland Charles Wagner was a French writer of humorous science fiction. Since his professional debut in 1981, he had written around one hundred novellas and around fifty novels. He was the only writer to have received the Prix Rosny-Aîné six times, as well as many other awards.
Les Futurs Mystères de Paris ("The Future Mysteries of Paris") features a "transparent" (not exactly invisible) private detective. Starting with La Balle du néant ("The Bullet From Nowhere"), this cycle has nine titles (up to Mine de rien, 2006) inside a larger set, including Le Chant du cosmos ("The Song of the Cosmos"), a far-future tale which describes a mental game inspired by Go.
La Saison de la sorcière ("Season of the Witch", 2003) takes place in France with extremely high-level police security, which is invaded by the United States. The novel received the Bob Morane Prize and the Prix Rosny-Aîné in 2004. Le Temps du voyage ("Trip Time", 2005) is a space opera in the mood of Jack Vance.
He had also written an alternate history biography of H. P. Lovecraft under the title HPL (1890–1991) which has been translated in English, and several pastiches of famous science fiction authors. For example, his Three Laws of Robotic Sexuality parodies Isaac Asimov's robot stories.
He also wrote lyrics for rock bands, and was a member of the acid punk group Brain Damage, active since 1977.
Roland C. Wagner had written under multiple pseudonyms, including Richard Wolfram, Henriette de la Sarthe, Paul Geron, and Red Deff.
He was born in Bab El Oued, Algeria. He was killed in an automobile accident on August 5, 2012.
