Le barjaweb est consacré à l'œuvre de René Barjavel, et se veut, à terme, en couvrir le plus complètement possible les différents aspects.

L'élaboration du site est la tâche à laquelle moi, G.M. Loup, je me suis consacré, mais il ne s'agit certainement pas d'un travail solitaire ! ( en savoir plus sur G.M. Loup et cette réalisation ) Ce site est accessible au public depuis le 24 novembre 2000, quinzième anniversaire de la mort de René Barjavel, mais son déployement complet prendra encore quelque temps, car la richesse de l'œuvre, trop souvent cataloguée comme "de Science-Fiction", voire "populaire", révèle, lorsqu'on en explore toutes les facettes, une richesse qui déborde largement ces domaines restreints...
