I decided to compare […]

When I hear the name of Claude Seignolle, venerable writer and folklore specialist who blew his last 100 candles last June, I always have a little nostalgic thrill. I see myself, young teenager, browsing the shelves of the Rosemont library in search of the novel that could replace the Bob Morane and Doc Savage that […]
