Dan Sugralinov grew up in a small working-class town on the Russian border with Kazakhstan. It’s a miracle he survived his childhood games of hide-and-seek in the surrounding building sites complete with perilous rebar structures and flooded foundation pits.
Roman Prokofiev is a bestselling Russian author of LitRPG, Gamelit and cyberpunk.
Roman started writing at an early age, inspired by fantasy classics such as J.R.R.Tolkien, Robert Jordan and Glen Cook. These days, he can’t remember what he’s done with those first tentative drafts - and in any case, they can’t have been that brilliant because Roman moved on, focusing on his studies, starting a family and running his own business.
