Overview

The fantastique is a substantial genre within French literature. Arguably dating back further than English language fantasy, it remains an active and productive genre which has evolved in conjunction with anglophone fantasy and horror and other French and international literature.

The Revolt of the Angels is the book that a UFO writer used to demonstrate that his particular brand of Ancient Astronauts were really Alien Creatures from a parallel dimension. Perhaps -- France herein makes similar points -- with tongue firmly in cheek, of course. You'll just to decide for yourself. France won the Nobel Prize for literature back in the days when it meant something. This farce is a treat whether or not the conspiracy is farce.

An excellent book by the Nobel Prize-winning France that looks at the nature of religion, doubt, and fanaticism in early 20th century France through the perspective of an angel-turned-atheist and his abandoned charge. The final few chapters demonstrate exactly why France was so brilliant and, also, what tasteful sacrilege-cum-art looks like. Also, unquestionably an influence on the more modern "His Dark Materials" young adult novels by Philip Pullman.
