Pseudonym of French author A Bétolaud La Drable (?   -?   ), which means something like "of the Moon". Un Monde Inconnu: Deux Ans sur la Lune (1896; trans Brian Stableford as An Unknown World: Two Years on the Moon 2014), is an unauthorized sequel (see Sequels by Other Hands) to Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon (1865) and its own sequel, Around the Moon (1870), featuring Verne's characters, the Gun Club, and a similar propulsion system. On the Moon, they come across the Underground Utopia of the Meolicenes, whose civilization boasts advanced Technology and other advantages. [JC]
