Overview

The Shipwreck Island by Alexander Belyaev

The "Roaring Twenties". The luxury steamship Benjamin Franklin leaves Genoa and sets out on a trans-Atlantic voyage it has taken many times before. Things do not go to plan, however, when the ship is caught in a storm and seriously damaged.

In all the confusion and panic, three passengers are left behind. A criminal, a detective who captured him and an heiress must face a journey far away from the regular trans-oceanic routes, into the heart of the treacherous Sargasso Sea - a journey that will change their lives forever.

About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Alexander Romanovich Belyaev (1884 - 1942) was a Soviet adventure and science fiction writer who sought to revive the scientific tradition of Jules Verne.

Incapacitated for years by a terrible illness, he took the time between surgeries and hospitals to study foreign languages, science, technology and history. This newly-acquired knowledge allowed Belyaev to structure his works in such a way that they would both entertain and educate his readers.

ABOUT THE TRANSLATOR

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.
