For having questioned the official theory on the existence of a single solar system, Rolf B 40 is condemned to injection n° 25 by the Police of Knowledge. He is then forced to join the ghetto of the contaminated outcasts where he befriends Titanor, a giant afflicted with a horrible tumor, and falls in love with frail Jana, who coughs up blood. The three of them join forces and embark on a quest to discover what lies at the heart of this twisted universe...
THE CHILDREN OF HISTORY:
History repeats itself when, in 2468, a violent revolution erupts in a utopian society. The Brains and the Natural Men preach the abandonment of all technology. The savage Children of History threaten to rise up. Alberg, the Mutant Hunter, in love with Iona, whose teeth glow at the slightest emotion, is caught in the turmoil. Will he use this opportunity to seize power?
"Kurt Steiner" is the pseudonym of André Ruellan (1922-2016), one of France's best-known science fiction and horror writers, as well as one of its most distinguished film writers.
