Alexander Belyaev

Alexander Belyaev (1884-1942) was a leading figure in Soviet science fiction whose works from the 1920s and 1930s earned him the title of “Russia’s Jules Verne.” Belyaev wrote dozens of stories and 13 novels, including Professor Dowell’s Head and the well-known Amphibian Man, which were both later turned into films. He died of starvation in the occupied town of Pushkin, after refusing to evacuate while he was recovering from an operation.
