The man in the high castle by Philip K Dick( Book )

En 1947, les Alliés capitulaient devant les forces de l'Axe. Cependant que Hitler avait imposé la tyrannie nazie à l'est des États-Unis, l'Ouest avait été attribué aux Japonais. Quelques années plus tard, la vie avait repris son cours normal dans la zone occupée par les Nippons. Ils avaient apporté avec eux l'usage du Yi-king, le livre des transformations du célèbre oracle chinois, dont l'origine se perd dans la nuit des temps. Pourtant, dans cette nouvelle civilisation, une rumeur étrange circule : un homme vivant reclus dans son château, un écrivain de science-fiction, serait l'auteur d'un ouvrage relatant la victoire des Alliés en 1945...

The ebb-tide : a trio and quartette by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is Tahiti in the 1890's and three men, an American sea captain, an English gentleman and a cockney thief, are 'on the beach'. Dispossessed and destitute, the 'trio' agree to sail a smallpox-infected ship loaded with champagne to Sydney, Australia, plotting to steal the cargo, scupper the vessel, and head for the 'Dangerous Archipelago'. Predictably, the thieves fall out. They lose their course and are driven towards an uncharted island which flies the red ensign. The owner of the island, also an English gentleman, has amassed a fortune in pearls. He is both a stern disciplinarian and a religious megalomaniac. As the protagonists in this 'quartette' begin to play out their parts, the plot moves to its dramatic, but ambiguous, conclusion. Stevenson's tale of exploitation in the South Seas recreates both the period and the place through a brilliant exploration of the moral corruption of colonisation

Roman fantastique sur fond de décor irlandais""Rares sont les écrivains qui peuvent égaler Hodgson lorsqu'il ébauche le dessein des forces sans nom et de monstrueuses entités toutes proches, au moyen d'allusions fortuites et de détails sans importance, ou bien lorsqu'il communique le sentiment du surnaturel et de l'anormal qui pèse sur un paysage ou une demeure. C'est l'histoire d'une maison abandonnée et maudite en Irlande, qui est le point de concentration de hideuses forces souterraines et qui soutient le siège lancé par des monstres hybrides et blasphémateurs, issus d'abîmes insoupçonnabl
