ZOLA, Emile (Edouard Charles Antoine)
(1840-1902)
   French writer whose long and intense Rougon-Macquart sequence of Naturalist novels (1871-93) includes tales like Nana (1880; trans E.A. Vizetelly 1884 UK), for which he was once notorious. EZ is of sf interestfor Verite (1903; trans E.A. Vizetelly as Truth 1903 UK), the 3rd vol of his unfinished Les Quatre Evangiles ("The Four Evangelists") quartet, which was planned to espouse a kind of Tolstoyan socialism. The action in Truth extends to 1980, and there are hints of advanced TECHNOLOGIES.
