Solaris is Quebec's premiere Science Fiction Magazine. Solaris was born under the name Requiem in 1974 by some college students in Cegep Edouard-Montpetit in Longueuil under the direction of Norbert Spehner. It featured first published work by such noted SF authors as Elizabeth Vonarburg, Jean-Pierre April, and Esther Rochon among others.

In 1979 Requiem changed its name to Solaris with issue #28. At about the same time Elizabeth Vonarburg became fiction editor. In her 11 years at Solaris, Elizabeth helped launch the careers of such notable authors as Joel Champetier,  Francine Pelletier, Yves Meynard and Jean-Louis Trudel. 

Solaris is now in its 26th year of publication. The current editor is Joel Champetier. It must be said that without Solaris, the development of French SF in Canada would be completely different if existent at all. 

I would like to thank Solaris editor Joel Champetier for his help in creating this page.
