Etienne was born in France but spent most of his life in other countries: Germany, United Kingdom, United States, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and more than a decade in Lebanon. He studied political science, film studies, cultural studies and got a doctorate in history and civilization from Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales. His obsession for stories has led him to gain experience in a French embassy, a film production company, a consultancy firm and many universities in different places, some of them guarded by tanks, others so beautiful he did not even need to be paid (but was anyway). Etienne also wrote three books, a very serious academic one on propaganda, a slightly more fun one on Hollywood and a novel about spies in Lebanon loosely based on imagination. Etienne is now teaching at Erasmus University in Rotterdam (ESHCC) and still collaborates with universities in Beirut, Krems and Prague. He also is a senior contributor to Slate.fr and conducts regular trainings for diplomats in Public Diplomacy at Clingendael. More

POPULAR FLASH FICTION

  • Space Age Mermaid
    Written by
    Space Age Mermaid

    Sulily sleeps suspended inside a transparent, cylindrical womb filled with luminous blue fluid. Her suit sticks to her body like a second skin and has knobby nodes that run up the length of her spine and end at the soft helmet’s base at the back of her neck. From the center of the helmet, wires fan outward and upward, gathering at the control center at the top of the container. Sulily’s mouth and nose are covered by a breathing apparatus with a serpentine root that coils and stretches down to the base of the cylinder.

    Lightning Bug

    When Bug was six, she got kicked in the head by a horse. By all accounts, that’s how she should have died. That she lived was a tiny miracle but it’s an old story, the one about how she went blind. When she was twelve, she got her brand new cybernetic eyes. You could even call it a brand new lease on life.

    Perish the Thought

    “If this boat hits one more swell, I swear I’ll hurl that slop they called breakfast back up on the deck.”

    Venus–AKA Captain Eyepatch’s gravelly complaint dragged Terra back to the here and now.
