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.
