112. Boris Akunin (b. 1956) Boris Akunin / TASS / Sergei Belyakov We're putting this great author on the honorable 112th place not because we like him less than the others, but because he admits that he's not a writer but a belletrist.

His pen name first appeared as B. Akunin, which has several … [Read more...] about 112 Russian writers ranging from great, to absolutely freaking great
