Rosny, J. H. (the Elder, or Ainé) (1856–1940)
The influence of Rosny's early work in France in the 1880s and 1890s has been cited as a factor in the decline of the popularity of Jules Verne's fiction in this same period. On Mars, the explorers came in contact with the gentle, peaceful, six-eyed, three-legged Tripedes, a dying race slowly being replaced by the Zoomorphs, alien entities made of minerals. A young Martian female, capable of bearing children parthenogetically by merely wishing it, gives birth to a child after falling in love with one of the human explorers – one of the first recorded romances between a human male and an alien female.
