About the Author


Alexei Nikolayevich Tolstoy (1882 – 1945) was a Russian Soviet writer and statesman. Having served in World War I as a war correspondent, he emigrated to Europe following October Revolution of 1917. Tolstoy returned to Russia five years later and fully embraced the new order, the point he attempted to illustrate in his epic trilogy The Path of Torture, in which he presented Bolshevism as widely understood and supported by the people, and the 1917 revolution as the act of ultimate truth. Tolstoy left behind a formidable body of work, including psychological, historic and science fiction novels and stories, political articles and children’s books.


Maria K. is the pen name of Maria Igorevna Kuroshchepova – a writer, translator, and blogger of Russian-Ukrainian decent. Maria came to the United States in 1994 as an impressionable 19-year old exchange student. She received her Bachelors and Masters degrees in engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, NY).

Maria covers a wide range of topics from travel and fashion to politics and social issues. Her science fiction and fantasy works include Limited Time for Tomato Soup, The SHIELD, The Elemental Tales and others.
A non-fiction and science fiction writer in her own right, Maria is also a prolific translator of less-known works of Russian and Soviet literature into English. Her most prominent translations include her grandfather Vasily Kuznetsov’s Siege of Leningrad journals titled The Ring of Nine, and Thais of Athens – a historic novel by Ivan Yefremov. Both works quickly made their way into the top 100 Kindle publications in their respective categories and continue attracting consistent interest and acclaim from readers.
