Set in an alternative historical present, in a eusistocracy an extreme welfare state that holds public health and social stability above all else, it follows a young woman whose growing addiction to illegal chili peppers leads her on an adventure into a world where love, sex, and free will are all controlled by the state. The Eusistocratic Republic of Finland has bred a new human sub-species of receptive, submissive women, called eloi, for sex and procreation, while intelligent, independent women are relegated to menial labor and sterilized so that they do not carry on their defective line. Vanna, raised as an eloi but secretly intelligent, needs money to help her doll-like sister, who has disappeared. Vanna forms a friendship with a man named Jare, and they become involved in buying and selling a stimulant known to the Health Authority to be extremely dangerous: chili peppers. Then Jare comes across a strange religious cult in possession of the Core of the Sun, a chili so hot that it is rumored to cause hallucinations. Does this chili have effects that justify its prohibition? How did Finland turn into the North Korea of Europe? And will Vanna succeed in her quest to find her sister, or will her growing need to satisfy her chili addiction destroy her?

"It is claimed Albert Einstein said that if bees disappear from the earth, mankind has four years left. When bee-vanishings of unprecedented scale hit the United States, Orvo, a Finnish beekeeper, knows all too well where it will lead. And when he sees the queen dead in his hives one day, it's clear the epidemic has spread to Europe, and the world is coming to an end. Orvo's special knowledge of bees just may enable him to glimpse a solution to catastrophe: he takes a desperate step onto a path where only he and the bees know the way but it propels him into conflict with his estranged, but much-loved son, a committed animal activist. A magical plunge into the myth of death and immortality, this is a tale of human blindness in the face of devastation-and the inevitable"

Le Reich de la Lune : roman by Johanna Sinisalo( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Après le suicide de Hitler, une poignée de dignitaires nazis se sont réfugiés dans une base en Antarctique. De là, ils ont embarqué à bord de fusées pour rejoindre un complexe souterrain sur la Lune. Depuis, les nazis et leurs descendants planifient méticuleusement leur revanche en attendant leur heure. Objectif : reconquérir la Terre. Obnubilés par leurs préparatifs guerriers, ils sont passés complètement à côté de la révolution numérique. Et lorsqu'une fusée américaine se pose sur la Lune en 2018, ils découvrent avec stupéfaction le téléphone portable de l'un de ses occupants. Persuadés que cet outil magique va leur permettre de finaliser le Götterdämmerung — la machine de guerre censément la plus puissante de tous les temps —, ils envoient une délégation d'espions sur Terre pour s'emparer de la nouvelle technologie. Mais la mission part en vrille : la mondialisation et la génération 2.0 sont passées par là et le monde que découvrent ces nazis "lunaires" endoctrinés jusqu'à la moelle ne correspond pas du tout à ce qu'ils ont appris en cours d'histoire... Reprenant et développant l'idée originale qui a guidé le scénario du film Iron Sky, Johanna Sinisalo signe une uchronie délicieusement barrée, joyeusement rocambolesque et délibérément grinçante. (
