Gérard Klein (b. 1937), known also as Gilles d'Argyre, is a French science fiction writer with sociological training.
He is the editor of the prestigious science fiction series
published by Robert Laffont and of the Ailleurs et Demain Le Livre de poche science-fiction imprint.
In his novella
Les virus ne parlent pas ("The viruses do not speak"), he imagines that viruses have created all living beings in the same fashion that human beings have created computers, and for the same reason: to improve their efficiency.
Gérard Klein used the

Several of his novels were published in translation by
