J.-H. Rosny Aîné was the pseudonym of Joseph Henri Honoré Boex, a French author of Belgian origin who is considered one of the founding figures of modern science fiction. Born in Brussels in 1856, he wrote together with his younger brother Séraphin Justin François Boex under the pen name J.-H. Rosny until 1908. After they ended their collaboration Joseph Boex continued to write under the name "Rosny Aîné" (Rosny the Elder) while his brother used J.-H. Rosny Jeune (Rosny the Younger).

“Pentru ce ești mai aproape de viața mea decât toți ceilalți? întrebă ea. Chiar închizând ochii, simt prezența ta; ea mă pătrunde, pe când prezența lor devine tot atât de imperceptibilă pe cât e de invizibilă!”
J.H. Rosny Aîné, The Navigators Of Space

“Era desigur dragoste, de o putere neasemuită, dar tot așa de pură ca dragostea pentru o floare.”
J.H. Rosny Aîné, The Navigators Of Space

“Dragostea lor fizică rămâne o enigmă mai misterioasă decât dragostea florilor. Îmbrățișarea lor, căci actul lor nupțial este o îmbrățișare, pare extraordinar de pură. Întregul corp iubește, într-un fel imaterial.”
J.H. Rosny Aîné, The Navigators Of Space
