About this book

Language: French

Octopus and giant squid have been a source of inspiration for classical writers like Jules Verne (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea), or Victor Hugo (The Toilers of the Sea), but also popular contemporary authors: Peter Benchley (author of Jaws), Arthur C. Clarke (2001: A Space Odyssey) or Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park).

In "Tentacules", with a preface by Jean-Jacques Barloy and co-written with Michel Raynal, recognized experts in cryptozoology, the giant cephalopods are presented in terms of science and fiction.
