About The Author

Romain Benassaya was born in Nice in 1984. After studying linguistics in Paris and obtaining a master's degree, he taught French in Canada, then in Uganda, before settling in Bangkok. Passionate about science fiction, and by his own admission deeply influenced by Frank Herbert's Dune and Dan Simmons' Hyperion , he naturally turned to space opera . Pyramides (Critic, 2018; Pocket, 2020), his second novel after Arca (Critic, 2016; Pocket, 2018), was acclaimed by critics. With his third novel, Les Naufragés de Velloa(Critic, 2019), he continues his exploration of infinite space but above all of the infinite complexity of the human soul.
