A Tribute to Ivan Yefremov
We have included, on our site, a book with a most intriguing background.
Thais of Athens, about the extraordinary Greek who became Queen of Egypt, was written by the equally extraordinary Ivan Yefremov–navigator, paleontologist, utopian, and iconic Russian science fiction writer. It was dedicated to his wife, Taysia, and was a departure from all his previous works. Unfortunately, Ivan, who was born in 1907, did not live to see this last book published. Translated by Maria Kuroshchepova, the book captures the cadences of a classic.
