Kir bulychev

Kir Bulychev or Bulychov (Russian: Кир Булычёв) (October 18, 1934—September 5, 2003) was a pen name of Igor Vsevolodovich Mojeiko (И́горь Все́володович Може́йко), who was a Soviet and Russian science fiction writer and historian. He received a Master's degree in 1965 and a Ph.D. in 1981 and wrote his first science fiction story in 1965. Since 1963 he worked in the Institute of Oriental Studies of the USSR Academy of Sciences. He was a specialist in the medieval history of Burma. He is known for his series of humorous short stories about Veliky Gusliar, a Russian town that attracts all kinds of aliens and supernatural beings. This fictional city is based on a real Veliky Ustyug city. Another well known series of Bulychev's stories are young adult stories about Alisa Seleznyova, a young girl from the future. A number of them were made into films, with Guest from the Future ("Гостья из будущего"), based on Bulychev's novel One Hundred Years Ahead ("Сто лет тому вперед"), the most widely known about a girl Alice living in the future. Another famous film was the animated feature The Mystery of the Third Planet (1981), for which Bulychev penned the screenplay.
