Read full description of the books:



Propulsé en 1940 à Londres par le professeur Dunworthy sans la moindre préparation, John Bartholomew intègre la brigade des veilleurs du feu, ces héros qui ont sauvé la cathédrale Saint-Paul des bombes allemandes... A cette époque, de nombreux Londoniens se réfugiaient dans le métro, dont plusieurs stations portent aujourd'hui encore de bien curieux stigmates... Et tandis que d'autres vont chercher la mort beaucoup plus loin, sur les rives antiques du Nil, certains accueillent en eux la présence des dieux à têtes d'animaux pour en faire un commerce fort lucratif... Voici quelques-uns des thèmes abordés dans ces neuf nouvelles et courts récits primés - parmi lesquels «Les veilleurs du feu», préquelle au roman Black-Out et au cycle temporel -, qui donnent à voir un aperçu complet des talents de conteuse de Connie Willis.

Read information about the author

Ebook Les Veilleurs read Online! Constance Elaine Trimmer Willis is an American science fiction writer. She is one of the most honored science fiction writers of the 1980s and 1990s.

She has won, among other awards, ten Hugo Awards and six Nebula Awards. Willis most recently won a Hugo Award for All Seated on the Ground (August 2008). She was the 2011 recipient of the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award from the Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA).

She lives in Greeley, Colorado with her husband Courtney Willis, a professor of physics at the University of Northern Colorado. She also has one daughter, Cordelia.

Willis is known for her accessible prose and likable characters. She has written several pieces involving time travel by history students and faculty of the future University of Oxford. These pieces include her Hugo Award-winning novels Doomsday Book and To Say Nothing of the Dog and the short story "Fire Watch," found in the short story collection of the same name.

Willis tends to the comedy of manners style of writing. Her protagonists are typically beset by single-minded people pursuing illogical agendas, such as attempting to organize a bell-ringing session in the middle of a deadly epidemic (Doomsday Book), or frustrating efforts to analyze near-death experiences by putting words in the mouths of interviewees (Passage).


Reviews of the Les Veilleurs


JAKE

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.
