Very good. Francis William Bain (1863-1940) was a writer of numerous fantasy stories that he claimed to have translated from Sanskrit. It became clear over time that he was not actually translating anything, but he had gained a following of readers who, it turned out, didn't care that he was making them up himself. He continued to write them even after he was outed, producing thirteen volumes in all.
