Babylon babies by Maurice G Dantec ( Book )
25 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A cult novel in France, this sci-fi thriller is now being made into a movie by Mathieu Kassovitz. Set in the hidden "flesh and chip" breeding grounds of the first cyborg communities and peopled by Serbian Mafiosi, Babylon Babies has as its hero a hard-boiled leatherneck veteran of Sarajevo named Thoorop who is hired by a mysterious source to escort a young woman named Marie Zorn from Russia to Canada. A garden variety job, he figures. But when Thoorop is offered an even higher fee by another organization, he realizes Marie is no ordinary girl. A schizophrenic and the possible carrier of a new artificial virus, Marie is carrying a mutant embryo created by an American cult that dreams of producing a genetically modified messiah, a dream that spells out the end of human life as we know it

Babylon babies by Maurice G Dantec ( Recording )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in the hidden breeding grounds of the first cyborg communities, Dantec's science fiction thriller mixes metaphysics with cyberpunk post-humanism in the spirit of Philip K. Dick. Toorop, a hard-boiled leatherneck veteran, has been assigned to escort a young woman from Russia to Canada. But Marie is no ordinary girl. A schizophrenic and a possible carrier of a new artificial virus, Marie is bearing a mutant embryo created by an American cult, which dreams of producing a genetically modified messiah that will end all human life as we know it. Moving at breakneck speed, Toorop risks his life to save Marie as her brain, linking to the neuromatrix, surpasses all limits to become the universe itself. Exploring the symbiosis between organic matter and computer power to spin new forms of consciousness, Babylon Babies rides Nietzsche's prophecy: "Man is something to be overcome."

Grand junction by Maurice G Dantec ( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On October 4, 2057, most electronic devices on Earth are infected and destroyed by unknown viruses, and billions of people dependent on machine interfaces are killed as a result. Twelve years later, the survivors are sunk in a new dark age, a grim afterworld in which the only law is the law of the jungle. In the sprawling ruins of Grand Junction, a thriving urban community centered on a abandoned spaceport, civilization is hanging on by its fingernails. In this last fragile outpost of knowledge and reason, hope and faith, a second wave of lethal viruses is unleashed--viruses that attack human beings directly, stripping away language, thought, humanity itself. But it is also here that a young boy, a guitar-playing prodigy named Link de Nova, discovers within himself the power to fight a malevolent entity determined to remake the world in its own bleak image. Now, as the viruses spread and enemies converge on Grand Junction, Link and his friends and protectors, Chrysler Campbell and Yuri McCoy, prepare to fight for the survival of the human race with rifles, radios, and rock 'n' roll--Publisher's description

Le théâtre des opérations : Journal métaphysique et polémique, 1999 by Maurice G Dantec ( Book )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Imperceptiblement, ce qui ne fut au départ qu'une poignée de "notes" éparses rassemblées à la va-vite dans un fichier de mon ordinateur devient "un bazar du XXe siècle", titre provisoirement adopté quelques années plus tard, dont l'origine fonctionnelle venait d'un besoin à peine conscient de mettre un peu d'ordre dans le chaos naissant de mes ouvrages.)
Laboratoire de catastrophe générale : Le théâtre des opérations. Journal métaphysique et polémique, 2000-2001 by Maurice G Dantec ( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Second volume du journal de l'auteur (cf. SDM A016762), brillant auteur de science-fiction et "prince du néopolar". La pente polémique s'accentue chez cet anti-Européen, furieux adepte du "mal penser", établi au Québec depuis 1995. Mais, par-delà les réactions négatives qu'il se plaît à provoquer, Dantec est souvent passionnant, qu'il parle de politique, de science, de métaphysique ou d'art. Et comme l'écrit J. Savigneau, "Dantec a l'énergie, la rage et la phrase". Un beau fatras sans doute violent, parfois apocalyptique, mais ni si haineux ni si narcissique que certains critiques ne le disent. [SDM]
