THE PSYCHEDELIC SCI-FI CLASSIC
Now published for the very first time in English, Stephan Wuls FANTASTIC PLANET (Oms En Série) is a classic of Science Fiction and the inspiration for the award-winning 1973 animated film La Planète Sauvage (Fantastic Planet).
The last surviving humans are taken from Earth to the wild planet Ygam by the Traags, a race of blue-skinned, red-eyed giants. Here they become known as Oms, used as lowly servants and regarded as savages.
Little by little, led by a young man of superior intelligence named Terr, the Oms regain their thirst for liberty and rise up against the draags to affirm their humanity in the face of oppression.
This deceptively simple story-line is vividly depicted by author Wul with mind-bending detail and a stirring mythopoeic resonance.
