Kottayam Pushpanath

Pushpanathan Pillai, better known by the pseudonym Kottayam Pushpanath (Malayalam: കോട്ടയം പുഷ്പനാഥ്), is a prolific Malayali author most noted for his detective novels in Malayalam language. He has also written mainstream novels, science fiction, and horror fiction, and translated Bram Stoker's Dracula into Malayalam.

Most of Pushpanath's work appeared during the period of the 1970s and 1980s. In the tradition of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, Pushpanath has created two fictional detectives Marxin and Pushparaj. If the story is set somewhere in India, Pushparaj often takes the role of the lead detective officer. Otherwise, detective Marxin is the main protagonist. Detective Sudheer also appears in the lead role in some of his novels.

Pushapanath lives in Kottayam, Kerala. His son, Salim Pushpanath is a well known photographer and publisher. He had published many books on tourism and other India-related subjects.
