Le Blanc (1864-1941) was a French novelist and writer of short stories known primarily for the creation of the character Arsene Lupin.

The stories feature a match of wits between the French gentleman thief turned detective Lupin and Herlock Sholmes, a transparent reference to Sherlock Holmes, the hero of Conan Doyle's detective series, and were first published in the original French in the magazine 'Je sais tout' in1906-07 before appearing in book form, with modifications, in 1908.
