(1979-    ) Russian journalist and author, best known for his Metro sequence beginning with Metro 2033 (2002 ebook; rev 2005; trans 2010), which was soon developed as a Videogame (for details see Metro 2033). The original tale begins in Near Future Russia, after the devastation caused by World War Three, and traces the evolution of an Underground network, each node being a station in the Moscow subway system, and of the savage intramural conflicts that ensue (see Keep; Pocket Universe). From further underground, other kinds of survivor (see Horror in SF; Mutants) lurk threateningly. Further volumes of the print sequence, which have been very popular in Russia, tend to maintain consistency with the game. [JC]
