• The Crime of Sylvestre Bonnard [A story of, well, uh, a young girl in a bad situation, ... an older guy, ... a child abduction, ... hints of behavior exceeding the bounds of propriety.... Is this the kind of thing you want your children exposed to? On the other hand, I do not believe that reading this would or could lower Robert Dole's moral values.'' --- Dr. Pseudocryptonym]
• Les Dieux ont Soif (variously Englished as The Gods Will Have Blood, The Gods A-Thirst, etc.)
