Paul Adam (December 7, 1862January 2, 1920) was a French novelist.

Adam wrote a series of historical novels that dealt with the period of the Napoleonic Wars and their aftermath; the first installment in the series, La Force, appeared in 1899. Together with Jean Moréas, he co-wrote Les Demoiselles Goubert, which was a novel that marked the transition between Naturalism and Symbolism in French literature. His novel Stephanie, which appeared in 1913, argued in favour of arranged marriages as opposed to those founded on romantic attachments.
