The World of the Variants feature a parallel world which certain privileged humans can inhabit. J.-H.

Rosny, who was a member of the distinguished Goncourt literary academy, was also the first writer to straddle the line between mainstream literature and science fiction. Until now, Rosny has best been known to the English-speaking public for his prehistoric thriller, Quest for Fire. This is a series of six volumes masterfully translated and annotated by Brian Stableford, devoted to presenting the classic works of this giant of French science fiction.
