@A.R.Yngve: and from the sound of it you probably haven’t been to France either. Their SF books at least have better covers than this, and you don’t have to go to annoying specialist shops to find them.
(And if you want to know what happens when French intellectualism meets Science Fiction’, check out Samuel R Delany and hs Foucauldian space-opera: a new dimension in nail-biting climaxes.)
Hey, the artist just tried to depict what was in the 13 stories…it wasn’t his fault they were about a phallic lipstick rocket, winged angel heads, a mostly naked woman being sucked into a black hole, and a kitty-demon-person(?) laying on a French newspaper.
If I was a stereo-typer then I would say that French science fiction is probably about a man that is able to travel through space while eating a baguette, smoking a cigarette, and sipping on a latte, whilst sporting a beret…But I’m not, so I won’t say it.
