Pseudonym of French soldier and author Louis-Léonard Pollet (1870-1937), best known for his writings about World War One, his contemporary diaries expressing a scathingly pacifist view of the conflict. Of sf interest are two late novels, La Flamme éternelle (1931) and its sequel Ciel Rose (1933), assembled together as The Eternal Flame (omni trans Brian Stableford 2013), in which the Invention of a new Power Source is scrutinized with unusual sophistication in terms of its Economic consequences.
