||The Blue Peril (1911), which many consider to be Renard's
masterpiece, features invisible alien creatures which live in high Earth
orbit and which, feeling threatened by man's incursion into space, retaliate
by fishing for men the way we capture fish, and studying our species.
"In spite of the vast progress in the exploration of extraordinary
ideas made by 20th century science fiction writers, very few have ventured
into territories as exotic as the ones featured herein, and even fewer
have done so with the same intellectual boldness and narrative flair."
