YESTERDAY I’LL GIVE YOU SOME NEWS
Over the past five years, Pierre Bordage has appeared in anthologies, has written for newspapers and magazines and authored prefaces. Texts requested by “others” interposing with his fiction work that has shown no sign of drying up over the years. Texts which actually confirm the link that Pierre Bordage has established with his readers, who are just as much lovers of science fiction, speculative fiction and fantasy as he is. A big public for a big man.
“This morning I wondered in me-speak (I speak me-speak fluently): Come now, Pierre (I’m very familiar with myself), why did you become an author of speculative fiction? Why this neurotic need to leave the s(ch)olar system and visit strange worlds?
Why deny the present so you can take shelter in the future (or in the past, the other extreme in the axis of time)? Couldn’t you just be content depicting reality, like everyone else?”
“In short story mode the author is just as comfortable as in the novel sequence he excels in.”
Thierry Hubert, Le Dauphiné Libéré
