Overview

Pierre Pelot is one of the grandmasters of modern French science fiction. His writing career spans over 40 years and includes over 200 novels in various genres, from westerns to science fiction, and crime thrillers to prehistoric novels. His books have been translated into twenty languages. However, this is his first translation into English.

The Child Who Walked on the Sky (1972) is Pelot's third science fiction novel, in which a maladjusted eight-year old is forced to flee the strange, artificial world of Zod, but his search for truth and a better life will take him to an entirely new world, beyond even his imagination.

What If Butterflies Cheat? (1974) is a masterpiece reminiscent of Philip K. Dick, taking place in a bizarre, dystopic future America where a wave of mental illnesses may be attempts at communication by entities beyond reality itself.

Michael Shreve is a writer and translator currently living in Paris. His credits include translations of Charles de Fieux, André Laurie, John-Antoine Nau and André Caroff.
