THE POLARIAN-DENEBIAN WAR 1. OPERATION APHRODITE by Jimmy Guieu (adapted by Michael Shreve)
“What you thought was green paint was their real skin. I told you, Mr. Kariven, that these beings are not human… They come from another world!”
In the first three novels, Jean Kariven discovers the origins of the conflict in precataclysmic Lemuria, then finds further evidence of the war during a Moon landing, before finally being drafted into battle in the third novel, where Earth’s entire future is at stake.
Introduction by Richard D. Nolane.
1. La Spirale du Temps [The Time Spiral] (1954)
2. Opération Aphrodite [Operation Aphrodite] (1955)
3. L’Homme de l’Espace [The Man from Outer Space](1955)
Henri-René “Jimmy” Guieu (1926-2000) was one of the leading French SF authors of the 1950s and 60s, before he turned to the exploration of UFOs and parapsychological phenomena. In this classic six-volume saga (presented in English in two volumes), written in 1954 through 1956, Guieu introduced his signature hero, French paleoanthropologist Jean Kariven, and imagined that Earth was secretly caught in a vast space-time war pitting the benevolent Polarians against the aggressive Denebians. Guieu sprinkled the books with some of his favorite themes, such as UFOs, alien encounters and ancient astronauts, while delivering fast-paced SF adventure.

In these times when character is becoming rare, it is interesting to me to show this wisp of a woman rebelling against becoming an informant.

The very rich might escape suspicion of greed, but who is safe from plotting, from wicked ambition, from the need for domination to which everything is sacrificed?

More than theories, as noble as they may be, more than advocates, as eloquent as they may be, I appreciate the bold sobriety of an event. It says more in its concrete form than all rhetoric.

Charity, I say, is a very beautiful thing when we understand in it not only the giving of the object, which is really a very small thing, but the giving of oneself.

Refusing to vote was a radical break from the democratic tradition, but the parliamentary system, she insisted, was a lure to allow a minority in power to live off the sweat and blood of the majority.
