About the writer:
THE WORLD IS AN UNINHABITABLE PLACE. (Review of the novel
"The Many-handed God of Dalayn"). Natalya Rezanova.
In all canonical mythological systems the world is either created for the man or at least
suitable for living. And what if the world is initially against humans?
EVERYONE CHOOSES FOR HIMSELF. (Review
of the novel "The Well"). Sergey Berezhnoy.
No one is allowed to choose for the man. The God, creating man, has granted him
freedom to reject God. It was not a test for the man, no matter what priests say.
Simply put, the man is dead without the right of choice.
THE WELL AND THE PENDULUM. (review of
the novel "The Well"). Vadim Khomyakov.
The matter is in that the magical well does not allow everybody to bring water for the suffering.
In the beginning, when Semen, just saved from slavery, tried, he wasn't able do do anything.
At least, he remained alive. Others have all perished. So, there must be something in the man.
Maybe the desire to help anyone, including enemies.
THOUGHTS ON... (review of
the novel "Black Blood"). Igor Bogdanov.
The authors have rushed up, to behold the events detachedly, touching earth and trees with love
but not touching the heroes going forth. They preferred watching burning petroleum to watching
EYES ON THE BACK OF THE HEAD, or WHAT'S AHEAD?
(afterword for the novel "The Many-handed God of Dalayn"). Andrey Balabukha
"The Many-handed God of Dalayn" was created exclusively with the help of
two-volume Mongolian-Russian dictionary. Not counting the author's intellect, soul and talent, of course.
THE SUBVERTER OF GENRES. Interview
with the book in background. (About "The Many-handed God of Dalayn").
Interviewer: Andrey Chertkov.
" A perfectly clear choice -- to write in absolutely different genres.
And when you look at your own texts, you see that you are repeating yourself.
That's why I always experiment.
"AND REALIZED THAT I'VE WRITTEN A SHORT STORY...
" Interview. Interviewers: Vladimir Naumov and Tatiana Pridannikova.
Once, having invented another story, I went and took a piece of paper, as I got used to at the school,
and started to write a composition. That invented story. I wrote it and went to bed, and when I saw
the sheet of paper on the table in the morning, I realized that I've written a short story.
INTERVIEW WITH THE "REDKAYA
Sviatoslav Loginov has finished his new novel -- "Black Whirlwind."
A finished large-scale work is a passed phase of the development of the writer,
a good occasion to sum up, to think about literature... Sviatoslav Loginov
has generously agreed to give our magazine an interview.
BLAZE UPON THE BLACK BLOOD. Vasiliy
You can say with certainty that in the "Black Blood" the authors have introduced
a new type of fantasy to Russian literature...
GUARDING THE PASS. Vasiliy Vladimirsky.
Loginov's prose organically includes both the high professional skill, that is only gained
with the great literary experience, and the deep erudition and ability to find a subject to talk
not only in the problems of the present day.
