Livadny Andrei

Born in 1969 in the city of Pskov, Andrei Livadny was an avid reader from an early age. But it was the Russian translation of Robert A. Heinlein’s The Orphans of the Sky that decided his choice of future occupation. Andrei wrote his first book at the age of eight. Since then, he’s never stopped working on new books. His passion for science fiction has gradually become his career. In 1998, Andrei debuted in Russia’s leading publishing house EKSMO with his novella The Island of Hope. Since then, he has penned over 90 books that have enjoyed a total of 153 editions.

Livadny’s recent involvement with the bestselling genre of LitRPG – books set in online roleplaying games – inspired him to create his most intriguing series to date, Phantom Server, merging virtual reality with hard science fiction and space exploration.
