Product Description

From Amazon

En 2013, le monde est en flammes, rongé par les nationalismes, les apprentis sorciers, les marchands d'armes, les nouvelles guerres, les mafias, les sectes... Le mercenaire érudit Hugo Cornelius Toorop doit convoyer à Montréal une jeune fille, Marie Zorn. Pour cet aventurier qui a survécu à la guerre de Bosnie, la mission paraît simple. Il ignore cependant que le corps de Marie Zorn est une arme biologique puissante et que la jeune fille est schizophrène.

L'avenir de l'humanité se joue-t-il sur les rives du Saint-Laurent ou au cœur des "schizomachines", des intelligences artificielles capables de se connecter sur l'ADN, et qui pourraient bien avoir conscience de leur propre existence ?

Au carrefour du roman noir et de la science-fiction, le récit de Dantec est, plus qu'une simple lecture, une expérience fondamentale. L'auteur brasse les phobies et folies du moment dans une brillante fresque épique, violente, noire, philosophique. Une réussite saluée, une fois de plus, par un énorme succès de librairie, après ses précédents romans (Une jeunesse française et Les Racines du mal). --Bruno Ménard

From the Back Cover

Un mafieux sibérien collectionneur de missiles. Un officier du GRU corrompu et lecteur de Sun Tzu. Une jeune schizophrène serai-amnésique trimbalant une arme biologique révolutionnaire. Des scientifiques assumant leur rôle d'apprentis sorciers et prêts à transgresser la Loi. Une poignée de soldats perdus à l'autre bout du monde, se battant pour des causes sans espoir. Des sectes post millénaristes à l'assaut des Citadelles du savoir. Des gangs de bikers se livrant à une guerre sans merci à coups de lance-roquettes. De jeunes technopunks préparant l'Apocalypse. Un écrivain de science-Fiction à moitié fou prétendant recevoir des messages du futur. N'ayez pas peur.

Tight, unnerving, and visionary Feb. 16 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Finally, a cyberpunk novel having nothing to do with either Japanese businessmen and/or US hackers, but rather with mongolian warlords, russian (er, also kazaki, ukranian etc.) mobbers, and veterans from the Kosovo war. Your basic 2013 dystopia, complete with genetic manipulation, fringe cultures, and an intriguing take on the biological roots of schizophrenia. Recommended

Amazing book April 26 2002
By Hebus - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of the most amazing books i read in a long time .
It defines a whole new era in fantasy with the depth of the created world . But what makes this book great is the similitudes and possible association with our world as it is .
This is a book whick will make one rethink their views about many things .
A really great book .
A must have for any respectable Sci- fi / fantasy fan .

Cyberpunk meets Ballard, Dick and Deleuze Oct. 27 2005
By Kim N. Ngoc - Published on Amazon.com
Babylon Babies is a vortex, blending the eurasian conflicts, the future of biological warfare, DNA, genetic manipulation, philosophy of the fold, schizophrenia, TAZ, urban guerilla...

Babylon babies is the french answer to Gibson, Ballard, Philippe K. Dick., an answer that links american's cyberpunk to the french philosophy of Deleuze, and the chaotic geopolitic of diying Europe.

Babylon babies is a ride in a sputnik over Tchernobyl and Canada in 2012, with NIN, Portishead, Laibach played loud on an old radio connected to the 80's ColdWave era...

Babylon Babies opened my mind to unclassical SF, underground litterature, avant-garde phylosophy, scientific research, and religions.

This book connects you towards unexpected new directions. It is not a book that enclose your vision, it is an explosion that expands your mind.

I can't wait for more translation of Maurice G. Dantec books.
