Norman Spinrad


The world of this brilliant and unique writer goes over science-fiction as just idle entertainment.  Cynical and idealist, his writings focus on media and political power manipulation. His novels have set new and absolute benchmarks for several generations of readers, fans of his dark, speculative, critical and anticipative fiction. Severals of his novels and collected works have already become classics. After Rock Machine, his new novel, Welcome to your Dreamtime, explores entertainment and technology.

Autobiography for Quais du Polar

‘I’m not a science-fiction or crime fiction author, I don’t belong to any genre… I hate the very concept of ‘genre’ and I find fiction far more interesting, be it for reading or writing. Fiction goes far beyond the notion of genre, it is a combination of genres, the notion itself is irrelevant.’
