Féval fils, Paul

Tagged: Author

(1860-1933) French author, best known for his adaptations and continuations of the work of his father, Paul Féval, beginning in 1893. He was relatively unprolific in the sf field, though Félifax (1929-1933 2vols [see Checklist for separate volumes]; trans Brian Stableford as Felifax the Tiger Man 2007) is about a Tarzan-like protagonist whose near-Superhero powers come into play – and manifest themselves in physiological changes – only when he is intensely aroused. The second volume, set partly in London also features a figure clearly derived from Sherlock Holmes. [JC]
