Apparently the chief pseudonym of an unidentified French author (?   -?   ), active between 1899 and 1939 under this name as well as Francis Annemary, Jacques Diamant, Corentin Goulphar and perhaps others. He specialized in exorbitant tales of adventure, featuring figures at the edge of gaining Superhero status, the most important of these being Doctor Ardan in the Doc Ardan sequence beginning with "La Cite de L'Or et de la Lepre" (1929 Sciences et Voyages; loose trans Jean-Marc Lofficier and Randy Lofficier as Doc Ardan: City of Gold and Lepers 2004), where a Villain capable of making gold from nuclear explosions must be defeated. The close influence of the Doc Savage sequence has, in prefatory matter by Jean-Marc Lofficier, been arduously if not seriously suggested. [JC]
