French science fiction authors united against Sarkozy
The idea comes from Alain Damasio, a French science fiction author who won 2007's Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire. "I got angry during the presidential elections and wondered what I could do to prevent Sarkozy from becoming president".
He missed the target, but he's quite satisfied at succeeding in putting together a few dozens authors who wrote short fictions denouncing the possible outcome of Nicolas Sarkozy's politics. Thirty of them were chosen to appear in an anthology, Appel d'air, published by the young company Les Trois Souhaits.
Many of the fictions are rich in humour and/or irony, like Damasio's himself, "Disparitions". Here the name of every member of the governement (and not only the government) is Nicolas Sarkozy.
If you can understand French, you can find more, with an interview to Damasio and two of the texts, in the Lyonnes de la SF's podcast.
