More Fantômas!

After almost two years away from creating any recordings for LibriVox, I am happy to say that I have gotten back into two of my favorite hobbies: talking, and listening to myself talk!  I have completed my newest solo recording, the second volume of the Fantômas series, The Exploits of Juve.

Fantômas was a creation of Marcel Allain and Pierre Souvestre.  They published 32 Fantômas novels between 1911 and 1913.  Fantômas followed the evolution from the detective novels, to the lovable rogues, such as Raffles and Arsène Lupin.  Rather than be a lovable criminal who stole from the rich with many a quip or bon mot, Fantômas was a ruthless killer.  His anarchic attitude captured the imagination of the French avant-garde movement.
