The biography by Jean-Jacques Barloy is entitled Bernard Heuvelmans: Un Rebelle de la Science (Bernard Heuvelmans: A Science Rebel).
Barloy is also involved as the annotator of Heuvelmans’ forthcoming books. Jean-Luc Rivera is the director of the publishing of the Heuvelmans collection of books, Bibliothèque Heuvelmansienne (Heuvelmansian Library).
The collection’s first volume – which has never been published before – is Les Félins Encore Inconnus d’Afrique (The Felines Still Unknown in Africa) by Bernard Heuvelmans. The book on cryptid felids is annotated with updates by Jean-Jacques Barloy (perhaps Bernard Heuvelmans’ closest living friend and disciple).
The collection will publish the complete cryptozoological works of Bernard Heuvelmans over a period of several years. It will all be in French, the original language of the books and there are no plans yet to do the huge amount of translation work required for these books to appear in English.
Speaking of French volumes, the book-bound journal La Gazette Fortéenne #5 is also due out in March 2007. From the initial volumes with Jean-Luc Rivera as their editor, the La Gazette Fortéenne have been superb collections incorporating unique international information.
Volume 5 has these cryptozoology chapters:
- Michel Meurger: “Pieuvres d’eau douce, ethnozoologie et cryptozoologie”
- Benoit Grison: “‘Hommes Sauvages’ & Primates énigmatiques d’Afrique: un imbroglio cryptozoologique”
- François de Sarre: “Des géants et des hommes… ”
- Aurore Mosnier: “Qu’était la Bête du Gévaudan?”
- Jean-Luc Buard: “Qui a découvert l’arbre anthropophage de Madagascar?”
- Loren Coleman: “Tom Slick et la CIA”.
