Houllebecq hellbent on sci-fi

An extraordinary piece of Le cinéma du look, with the author remixing his own text radically? Evaluate in September 2008 when this is due for release…

“Michel Houllebecq’s 2006 novel La Possibilité d’une île (The Possibility of an Island) has appeared on the Internet. La Possibilité d’une île is an acerbic piece of dystopian science fiction about a famous French comedian who comes into contact with a free love UFO cult called the Elohimites. The group, who are very obviously based on Claude Vorilhon’s Raelian movement, uses its significant resources to develop human cloning technologies in order to propagate a race of cult clones.”
