Francis Carsac

is the pseudonym of world-famous paleontologist Francois Bordes (1919-1981). Professor Bordes taught at the University of Bordeaux, led countless digs that welcomed American students of prehistoric archaeology (including me!), and wrote 6 science fiction novels and 19 short stories in his ‘spare’ time! THE CITY A MONG THE STARS is the first of his novels to be translated into English; the others, and a collection of his short stories, will follow.

THE CITY A MONG THE STARS

An epic space opera about grown-up child soldier Tankar Holroy whose spaceship is sabotaged leaving him floating through space until he’s rescued by the people of the stars. First published in 1962, the story of Tankar’s life as a refugee delivers a timely and compelling tale for our times.
