Louise Michel's utopian fiction

Black Coat Press has just published translations of two of Louise Michel's utopian novels, The Human Microbes (1887) and The New World (1888). They were part of a projected 6-volume science-fiction series. Brian Stableford, who also translated a collection of Han Ryner's stories, The Superhumans, and who is well-known as a prolific author and translator, did the translations. I've read parts of The Human Microbes in French, and it's a wild ride. I'm putting my order in for these two volumes right away.
