About the Author

Francis Carsac, a pseudonym for the world-renowned French scientist, geologist, and archaeologist Francois Bordes, wrote and published six novels during the golden age of science fiction.

Never before published in English, these novels resonate with timely issues ranging from climate control to racism and greed and tell the stories of characters whose challenges and triumphs clearly relate to many of the problems we encounter today. He has been translated and published into Russian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Hungarian, Estonian amongst others.


"Riveting and introspective, The City among the Stars is a novel that readers will devour in one sitting, anticipating the turn of every page."
"Reminiscent of Poul Anderson, Gordon Dickson, and Leigh Brackett, Carsac is a good storyteller and The City Among the Stars is a fun tale set in an interesting culture. We can only hope that more translations of Carsac's work are in the pipeline."
"Most of the world knew Francois Bordes as one of the world's leading paleoanthropologists. His The Old Stone Age was required reading for generations of archaeologists. Long considered one of France's giants of science fiction, and writing under the pen name Francis Carsac, his The City of the Stars is now available in English translation. This stunning classic stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Arthur C. Clarke, Asimov, and Heinlein." - New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear
"A dramatic exploration of belonging and the weight of unintended consequences set within twin wars, The City Among the Stars revives the golden age of science fiction for a new audience."
"Devotees of classic sci-fi will appreciate this translation."
