Hérault, Paul-Jean

Pseudonym of French journalist and author Michel Rigaud (1934-2020), perhaps best known in France for his Cal de Ter sequence of Space Operas beginning with Le Rescapé de la Terre ["The Survivor of Earth"] (1975). Les Clones Deviants ["The Clone Deviants"] (2005; trans Michael Shreve as The Clone Rebellion 2015) is set in a Galactic Empire universe, with great armies of Clones clashing in interstellar space; their realization that they have been engineered to die uselessly leads to their revolt.
