Robert Charroux was the best-known pen-name of Robert Grugeau (April 7, 1909 - June 24, 1978). worked for the French post office until becoming a full-time writer of fiction in the early 1940s. He also wrote the scripts for a French comic strip, Atomas, about an atomic-powered superhero, appearing in the weekly magazine Mon Journal in the late 1940s. For the same magazine Charroux wrote a science fiction adventure in serial form, Prof. Barthelemys Flying Island. Charroux was a pioneer of the theory of ancient astronauts, publishing at least six non-fiction works in this genre in the last decade of his life, including One Hundred Thousand Years of Mans Unknown History (1963, 1970), Forgotten Worlds (1973), Masters of the World (1974), The Gods Unknown (1974) and Legacy of the Gods (1974). The influence that Charrouxs first work (in its 1963 version) had on Erich Von Danikens first books (ca. 1966), as well as the influence that Von Danikens early books had on Charroux, is widely appreciated.
