About the Author

Artsun Akopyan was born in Russia in 1963 and graduated from Pyatigorsk State Linguistic University in 1986. He writes both in Russian and English. His short stories have been winners of various writing contests (“Crocodile” magazine, Russia, and “Writers’ International Forum”, USA). In 2009, his manuscript “The Unwilling Slave Trader” (in Russian) was the cover story in B. Strugatsky’s science fiction magazine “Polden. XXI Vek “ (Noon. XXI Century). His short story “Outlaw” was published by online “AlienSkin Magazine” (USA) in 2007. He also has more than 20 short stories published in humor magazines in Russia. Besides, he has translated several books from English into Russian and written a few computer software self-study books (with CDs) in Russian published by Multimedia Technologies and Distant Learning in Moscow, including “Professional Translators’ Software”, “Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003”, “Microsoft Office Outlook 2003”, “Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003”, “Microsoft Office OneNote 2003”, “Microsoft Office MS Groove 2007”, and “Microsoft Office MS Communicator 2007”.

In addition to writing, Mr. Akopyan appears on stage in his home town Kislovodsk, a famous Russian spa, as a performer and singer in a show created by him and his wife. You can also see him regularly at a local gym where he works out with weights, accompanied by his two sons in their teens, or in the local huge and beautiful park, walking along the health paths up the surrounding mountains. Sometimes he takes the painter's case with him to stand on a mountain top and depict the beauty of this world on canvas. However, writing is his most favorite activity!

Excellent reading, a real page turner. Looking forward for more from the same author. Thanks!

The book is truly absorbing. The characters are drawn with a skilful pencil, the plot twists are unexpected. And the idea of using genetic engineering for survival looks quite original. Good job!

A real page-turner. Very unusual sci-fi.

I seldom read science fiction, but I had read a short story by this author before online and liked his style. This novel has proved to be interesting, too. There’s much action and personal relations between a man and a woman. Plus the unique idea that people should use genetics to survive in the future. So, I recommend the book!
