Icon made by Freepik from


(1865-1932) French journalist, poet and author, of some sf interest for a novel published at the end of his active career, La Fin d'Atlantis ou le grand soir ["The End of Atlantis or the Great Evening"] (1926; trans Brian Stableford as The End of Atlantis 2017). The novel is remarkable not for any originality concerning the collapse of the Empire of Atlantis into the sea, but for a sustained essayistic conflation of the fate of the great Island and the Decadence of the West after World War One.
