Wells. Until now, Renard was best known to the English-speaking public for his thrice-filmed thriller, The Hands of Orlac. The Blue Peril (1911), which many consider to be Renards masterpiece, features invisible alien creatures which live in high Earth orbit and which, feeling threatened by mans incursion into space, retaliate by fishing for men the way we capture fish, and studying our species. It is the third of a series of five volumes, translated and annotated by Brian Stableford, devoted to presenting the classic works of this pioneering giant of French science fiction.
