About this title:

Synopsis:

The Marquise de Langrune is savagely murdered in her chateau, a certain Lord Beltham vanishes, a princess is robbed of her jewels, and an ocean liner sinks. Behind these mysteries Inspector Juve of the Paris Sûreté recognizes the hand of the Lord of Terror, Fantômas. Chasing false leads, tracking suspects in disguise through the dive bars of the underworld, he is obsessed with catching the shapeshifting arch-criminal who haunts the Parisian bourgeoisie.

“From the imaginative standpoint Fantômas is one of the richest works that exist.”
—Guillaume Apollinaire

“Absurd and magnificent lyricism.”
—Jean Cocteau

About the Author: After Fantômas was published in 1911 to wild popularity and success, Marcel Allain—the secretary and writing partner of the already well-known journalist and novelist Pierre Souvestre—went on to publish 20 equels to the original. After Souvestre's death in 1914, Allain wrote another eleven books in the Fantômas series and launched several other pulp fiction series on his own. Allain passed away in 1969, having written more than 400 novels throughout his career.  

After Fantômas was published in 1911 to wild popularity and success, Pierre Souvestre, an already well-known journalist and novelist, and Marcel Allain, his secretary and writing partner, went on to publish twenty sequels to the original. After Souvestre's death in 1914, Allain wrote another eleven books in the Fantômas series and launched several other pulp fiction series on his own.

John Ashbery has published more than 20 books of poetry and has won almost every notable award for poetry in the United States. His collection Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the National Book Award. The Charles P. Stevenson, Jr., Professor of Languages and Literature at Bard College until 2008, Ashbery was poet laureate of New York State from 2001 to 2003 and chancellor of the Academy of American Poets from 1988 to 1999.
