About the Author
Laurent Genefort was born in 1968 in the Paris region. At the age of 20, he became the youngest author of the Fleuve Noir Anticipation collection with Le Bagne des ténèbres. After studying literature at the Sorbonne, Laurent Genefort devoted himself entirely to writing and in 1995 won the Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire for Arago. He is best-known for the immersive universe that he developsed around the space opera Omale. Published for the first time in 2001, the novel is the first in a series of works telling the destinies of three species cohabiting on the planet Omale: the humans, the Chiles and the Hodgqins.
From 2008 to 2012, the writer directed the collection " Les Trésors de la SF " at Bragelonne. In 2017, he participated in the adaptation of his novel Les Peaux épaisses to the graphic novel medium.
Born in Vincennes in 1946, Serge Le Tendre knew very early that he wanted to be a comic book artist. His parents did not see it that way and, at 16, he found himself an accountant's assistant. As soon as he was old enough, he enrolled at the university in his native town, where he attended comic book courses given by Mézières, Giraud and Moliterni, and where he rubbed shoulders with André Juillard and Régis Loisel.
He quickly preferred the job of scriptwriter to that of cartoonist. From 1974, he conceived short stories for the magazines Pilote and Tousse-Bourin with Dominique Hé, Annie Goetzinger and Michel Rouge illustrating. In 1975, in the luxury magazine Imagine, edited by Rodolphe, he inaugurated his now famous Quest for the Time Bird, illustrated by Loisel. Since 1977, he has contributed to the periodicals Fluide Glacial, Métal Hurlant, Fripounet, Circus... and has written countless other books.
