|André Caroff (pseudonym
of André Carpouzis) (1924-March 9, 2009) was one of the leading authors of publisher Fleuve Noir's popular horror, then science fiction
imprints, Angoisse and
Anticipation. For Angoisse, he created the character of
Madame Atomos, a brilliant
but twisted middle-aged female Japanese scientist who is out to revenge herself against the United States for the
bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where she was born. Eighteen novels were published between 1964 and 1970, and
were recently collected in a six-volume omnibus edition by Black Coat Press' French imprint, Riviere Blanche.
For Anticipation, Caroff
had created various series including that of Space Security Agent Tom
Rod. While his sight was impaired, Caroff had embarked on a new post-apocalyptic
saga for Rivière Blanche in 2006, with two volumes already released and two more to be published posthumously.
In total, Caroff's oeuvre included 30 horror novels and 34 science fiction novels.
