Thiaudière, Edmond

Tagged: Author

(1837-1930) French philosopher and author, active from before 1860, most of his work being nonfiction. His sf includes La Dernière Bataille: épopée prophétique de l'année 1909 ["The Last Battle: Prophetic Epic of the Year 1909"] (1873 chap) as by Frederic Stampf, a Future War tale climaxing in the creation of a unified socialist Europe; and the three speculations about experimental Psychology assembled as Trois Amours Singulières (coll 1886; trans Brian Stableford as Singular Amours 2018), which present examples of Gothic SF in the shape of seriously intended (and very seriously indited) case studies.
