Stefan Wul was the nom de plume of the French science fiction writer Pierre Pairault (27 March 1922 - 26 November 2003). His best known work is Oms en Série, which was adapted for film as Fantastic Planet.


He was a dental surgeon, but science fiction was his real passion. Most of his books reflect that, showing deep knowledge of scientific data. Pairault retired from dental surgery in 1989, but remained active in the French science fiction scene.

He published eleven novels between 1956 and 1959 and a twelfth in 1977. Only one, Le Temple du Passé (1957), was translated into English (as The Temple of the Past, 1973). Oms en Série (1957) was adapted for the screen as the animated feature La Planète sauvage (released in the US as Fantastic Planet).
