Biography

French science fiction writer, economist by profession, known also as Gilles d'Argyre.

He is the editor of the prestigious science fiction series Ailleurs et Demain published by Robert Laffont and of the Le Livre de poche science-fiction imprint.

In his novella Les virus ne parlent pas ("The viruses do not speak"), he imagines that viruses have created all living beings in the same fashion that human beings have created computers, and for the same reason: to improve their efficiency.

Gérard Klein used the pseudonym "Gilles d'Argyre" for his novels published by Editions Fleuve Noir for their series Anticipation. He has also written under other pseudonyms, for example Mark Starr and François Pagery).

Several of his novels were published in translation by DAW Books in the United States.
