LE LYCAN BLANC
By Phil Becker
Phil Becker is 31 and lives in Perpignan.
Currently a journalist for the weekly newspaper ‘La Semaine du Roussillon’, he describes himself as a ‘job nomad’. He has done a bit of everything… but finds stability in writing.
Le Lycan Blanc is his first novel, a heroic-fantasy that takes place… in Catalonia ! The book follows an albino werewolf, Corcinos, in a alternative XII century.
All the fantasy archetypes are present: wizards, chivalry, fantastic creatures such as werewolves, minotaurs and titans… but the beauty of this fantasy is that it takes place around the Canigo, Perpignan, and Collioure!
Raised on the Mount Canigo, the werewolf begins a journey to discover how he became a monster. He encounters enemies, mysterious characters, and a few ladies who are certainly not prepared for his transformation! The author shows us the merciless Middle Ages, with an especially dark vision of Perpignan: fights in shabby cellars, prostitute murders – everything fans of bloody heroic-fantasy will appreciate.
