Le Prince du Sable (Cycle de Dashvara t. 1) (French Edition)
« Aujourd'hui, tu dois être le plus fort de tous les hommes, mon fils. Lorsque nous t'aurons livré, tu vivras et, nous, nous mourrons. »
Alors que le Donjon Xalya est sur le point de tomber face à l'attaque d'une alliance de sauvages, le dernier seigneur de la steppe confie à son fils premier-né une mission douloureuse : Dashvara doit se faire passer pour un membre d'un clan ennemi, pour un Shalussi, afin d'accomplir une vengeance honteuse. Forcé de voir son peuple massacré et réduit en esclavage, cet homme brisé mais toujours fier et non dénué d'humour se retrouvera bientôt entraîné dans une aventure surprenante qui fera vaciller ses croyances et sa volonté.
Cette trilogie raconte l'histoire de Dashvara et sa vie en Haréka, un monde de guildes, confréries et peuples libres ; un monde de magie naturelle ; un monde parfois injuste et cruel, mais aussi chaleureux et émouvant.Tomes de la trilogie :
Le Prince du Sable (tome 1) ; Le Seigneur des Esclaves (tome 2) ; L'Oiseau Éternel (tome 3) sera publié en 2017.
Whales for the Wizard

Prepare yourself for a serial killer who will get inside your head. Literally. Tom's life is not what it once was. His marriage to the beautiful Nora is on the rocks and he now sees his two young children only on her say so. His best friend - and best man - Neil has moved away to California to teach neurology. He has one successful book - on human psychology - but he now wiles away the time teaching bored grad students. But that all changes when Neil comes back into his life. For it seems that his best friend was no teacher - he was working for the US government, cracking the minds of suspected terrorists. But now it is Neil himself that has cracked and gone AWOL - what's more he has left behind evidence that he has been employing his unique skills on civilians - obsessed with the idea that he can control the human brain. Thus begins a terrifying sequence of events as Neil starts to kidnap and mutilate people with a connection to Tom. But it is only when he gets near his ultimate target does he reveal the full horror of his plan...

The Mote in Time s Eye
20,000 years from now, a space ship from the human colonies of the Lesser Magellanic Clouds accidentally falls into a time trap set up by two unimaginably powerful rival empires from millions of years in the future. The ship is thrown back 200 million years into the past. Will its Captain, the heroic Varun Shangrin, succeed in returning to their own time? And how did the accident affect the time war between the two shadowy cosmic combatants? Gerard Klein is a distinguished economist and one of France's best known science fiction writers. He also edited the prestigious science fiction imprint Ailleurs et Demain for 40 years. This new edition of this classic SF novel from 1965 also includes four short stories translated by SF Grand Master Damon Knight, and an introduction and bibliography by Jean-Marc Lofficier.

The refinement of radiocarbon dating using the information form tree-ring counts has raised serious doubts about the accepted theoretical frameowkr of European prehistory. Monuments in Central and Western Europe have proved to be considerably older than their supposed Near-Eastern forerunners, and the record must be almost completely rewritten in the light of these new dates. Before Civilsation is a preliminary attempt to do this with the help of analogies from more recent and well-documented primitive societies. The more glaring inconsistencies in the old theory are re-examined and Professor Renfrew shows convincingly how the baffling monuments of prehistoric Europe, like Stonehenge, could have been built without recourse to help from the 'more civilized' Near East.

Ethnicity in Mediterranean Protohistory
This book on ethnicity in Mediterranean protohistory may well be regarded as the main and final result of the project on the ethnicity of the Sea Peoples as set up by Wim van Binsbergen as academic supervisor and worked out by Fred Woudhuizen who, in the process, earned himself a PhD from the Erasmus University Rotterdam (2006). The book is divided into four parts: I) Ethnicity in Mediterranean proto-history: explorations in theory and method: With extensive discussions of the Homeric catalogue of ships, the Biblical Table of Nations, and the Sea Peoples of the Late Bronze Age, against the background of a long-range comparative framework; II) The ethnicity of the Sea Peoples: an historical, archaeological and linguistic study; III) The ethnicity of the Sea Peoples: A second opinion; IV) The ethnicity of the Sea Peoples: Towards a synthesis, and in anticipation of criticism. It will soon be clear to the reader that the two authors differ considerably in their view on the matter, largely as a result of their different background and disciplinary allegiance. Thus Wim van Binsbergen (Parts I and III) -- apart from providing an elaborate theoretical framework--, as a historicising anthropologist focuses on long-term processes and cultural features, whereas Fred Woudhuizen (Part II), as a historian by origin, is more occupied with the reconstruction (however difficult, in the protohistorical context) of the petty historical incidents. But however much the two authors may differ in detail and in overall disciplinary orientation, in the end they offer the reader a balanced synthesis, co-authored by both of them (Part IV), in which their respective views turn out to be complementary rather than diametrically opposed, and in which also a further methodological and linguistic vindication is offered for the more controversial points contained in the present book.
