Igor Knox is a bestselling Russian author working in the genres of LitRPG and fantasy.
He found his first inspiration in sea adventure classics by Robert Louis Stevenson, Rafael Sabatini and C. S. Forester among many others. At the same time, he was a passionate gamer and fantasy fan which prompted him to try his hand at the genre of LitRPG, giving it a sea adventure slant with pirates and naval entourage.
His debut novel Isle of Destiny (A Buccaneer's Due Book 1), became the first LitRPG novel set in the Caribbean during the Golden Age of piracy. He likes to root his stories in historical settings and events with plenty of allusions to classic sea adventures, computer games and other LitRPG books.
