Nathalie C. Henneberg

Nathalie Nowokowski was born in Georgia in 1910. Her family left Georgia in 1920 with General Wrangel’s troops and emigrated first to Turkey, then to Syria and finally to the Lebanon. She met Charles Henneberg in Syria where they married on the 23rd March 1937 in Damascus.

Both alone and in cooperation with each other, Nathalie and Charles Henneberg wrote flamboyant space operas portraying superhero characters, who were often soldiers or mercenaries with violent and romantic passions.

In 1976, a year before her death, Nathalie Henneberg brought out Le Dieu foudroyé (God Struck Down, a sequel and coda to La Plaie (The Plague); this was her swansong.
