Read full description of the books The Corpse Who Kills:FANTÔMAS
FANTÔMAS is the Emperor of Crime, the Lord of Terror, the Genius of Evil, the nihilistic anti-hero of a series of sublime pulps, books brimming with motifs of the "marvellous": nuns, coffins, severed hands, daggers, masks, bells that bleed, corpses, poison flowers, gloves of human skin, lunatics and labyrinths. Fantômas loves criminal atrocities and random acts of "beautiful-compulsive" violence, carnage on a mass scale, outrageous theft, arson and destruction, virtuoso displays of terrorism and chaos compounded by the brutality of the Paris street-gangs under his command.
FANTÔMAS: THE CORPSE WHO kills (Le Mort Qui Tue. 1911), the third and perhaps most inventive in this astonishing series, was acclaimed by the Surrealists for its dream-like imagery, wanton cruelty, and gallows-black humour. This new edition includes an illustrated introduction on Fantômas and the Surrealists.
From the imaginative standpoint Fantômas is on fo the richest works that esist - Guillaume Apollinaire
Enfantômastic - James Joyce
Read information about the authorMarcel Allain (1885-1970) was a French writer mostly remembered today for his co-creation with Pierre Souvestre of the fictional arch-villain and master criminal Fantômas.
The son of a Parisian bourgeois family, Allain studied law before becoming a journalist. He then became the assistant of Souvestre, who was already a well-known figure in literary circles. In 1909, the two men published their first novel, Le Rour. Investigating Magistrate Germain Fuselier, later to become a recurring character in the Fantômas series, appears in the novel.
Then, in February 1911, Allain and Souvestre embarked upon the Fantômas book series at the request of publisher Arthème Fayard, who wanted to create a new monthly pulp magazine. The success was immediate and lasting.
After Souvestre’s death in February 1914, Allain continued the Fantômas saga alone, then launched several other series, such as Tigris, Fatala, Miss Téria and Férocias, but none garnered the same popularity as Fantômas.
