Meet the Author

Yury Nikitin is a famous Russian speculative fiction writer of Ukrainian origin, a recognized founder of Slavic fantasy. He has published over 100 novels (half of them under the pen name of Gaius Julius Orlovsky) that have sold a total of over 12,000,000 copies.Yury was born in 1939 in Kharkiv, Ukraine. At the age of 18, his thirst for adventure drove him to Siberia where he spent several years as a lumberman and rafter, then a geologist exploring the lands where, literally, no foot of man had stepped before. Back in Kharkiv, he became a foundry worker, while being appreciated by local media as a part-time columnist and artist.Wrote his first short stories in 1965, just for fun. His first novel (Fire Worshippers, featuring his colleagues from the foundry) was a success, and in 1976 he became a full-time writer. Later, a conflict with Ukrainian Communists made him move to Moscow in 1983.After the collapse of Communism in Russia, Yury founded one of the first private publishing companies in the country and ran it for several years. Then he quit this job to devote himself to writing only.Being fluent in English and an avid reader, Yury Nikitin used to have a home library of over 5,000 books, mainly works of British and American science fiction. However, now he prefers e-books, as they are more convenient.On March 29, 2014, Yury made an official confession that he was the one writing under the pen name of Gaius Julius Orlovsky. Before that, no one knew for sure the true identity of this mysterious author whose Richard Longarms, an epic fantasy series of 50 books, topped the Russian bestselling lists for 10 years in a row.Today Yury Nikitin is one of the most famous and successful writers in Russia. Still working hard on his new books, he lives in a country house near Moscow with his wife and a pet boxer. The things he loves include ants (yes!), sweet black coffee, high-end computers and gadgets, and online strategies. An active supporter of Transhumanism, he has a cryonic contract and uses regular exercise, diet and pharmaceutical means to keep himself as young and vigorous as one can be. Yes, he would really want to live forever.You may contact Yury Nikitin online on Facebook: facebook.com/ury.nikitin

    A Very Good Tale

    It has been a very long time since I have found a book of this length that kept me reading until 3 in the morning. Excellent tale! Crusaders, the Holy Grail, monsters, hidden underground peoples, a truly noble knight and his sorcerer companion.
    Can't wait for the follow-on novel.
    One of the best story's I have ever read.

    A+

    One of those books that make you cringe as the page numbers toll the ending because you just dont want it to end! There were some quirks of speech that I attribute to the authors European base but which, ironically, detracted not at all and actually seemed to age the content appropriately! I enjoyed.
