House name (literally) of French author Paul Deleutre (1856-1915) and of other members of his family; Paul Deleutre wrote under this name a 21-volume series of Fantastic Voyages, under the series titles Les Voyages Excentriques ["Eccentric Voyages"], in a clear attempt to compete with Jules Verne's Les Voyages Extraordinaires ["Extraordinary Voyages"], the rubric under which Jules Hetzel published the vast majority of his fictional output. D'Ivoi's tales, which have not been translated, appeared usually in Le Journal des Voyages, and subsequently in book form, between 1894 and 1914, by the Paris firm of Furne et Cie, beginning with Les Cinq Sous de Lavarède ["The Five Pennies of Lavarede"] (1894; rev 1924), and continuing with tales about Lavarède and others full of Inventions, Lost Worlds, the occasional averting of a Future War, and the frequent humiliation of Great Britain. The series closed with L'Évadé Malgré Lui ["The Escapee in Spite of Himself"] (1914). [JC]
