I am trying to remember the name and the author of a short story that seems to have a similar plot to the Besson's movie "Lucy".
I read that stories more than 30 years ago: A scientist made an evolution experiment on a man and a woman. The man de-evolves to a beast and the woman evolves to have God-like power, having to fight against people trying to control her.
I remember having read classic "pulps" authors at that time.
I have browsed lot of novella descriptions. There is one that seems to match, "Research Alpha" - Van Vogt (1965). It features an "evolution serum" and "big IQ levels". Unfortunately, I don't have the book at hand. If someone would check it that would be great.
