Over and over and over, Daniel Diersant drives his Volkswagen up to the gates, in the course of this narrative, only sometimes they are not quite the same gates, nor is the guard the same, nor does the pass read precisely the same, and perhaps the picture on it is of another man's face.

Overview

Daniel Diersant drives his Volkswagen up to the factory gates and presents his pass to the guard. Over and over and over, Daniel Diersant drives his Volkswagen up to the gates, in the course of this narrative, only sometimes they are not quite the same gates, nor is the guard the same, nor does the pass read precisely the same, and perhaps the picture on it is of another man's face. But then, Daniel Diersant may be Dr. Robert Holzach from time to time, despite the fact that Dr. Holzach may not have been born yet... Translated by renowned mystery and science fiction writer and critic Maxim Jakubowski, Chronolysis is one of the most important French SF novels of the 1970s. It deals with time and its manipulation through the use of chronolytic drugs. Its protagonists are psychronauts, helpless explorers of a confusing, multidimensional universe, facing threats from alternate realities, such as Harry Krupp Hitler 1st, Emperor of the Undetermined, or the mysterious Phords from the future world of Garichankar. They search for secret paradises, hidden within the folds of space and time, away from their bleak realities, such as the tropical realm of Oblivion-by-Ruaba. This volume also includes a foreword by Theodore Sturgeon, a biography and bibliography of Michel Jeury and a never-before-published short story translated by Jean-Marc & Randy Lofficier.

Editorial Reviews

Theodore Sturgeon
Just how Jeury conveys the feeling that he knows what he is doing, that he is in charge, that you the reader are in the place in which he intends you to be, cannot be analyzed. A very small number of writers have this ability: Joseph Heller can do it; so can Kurt Vonnegut and Philip K. Dick.
