(1902-1966) Bulgarian author and man of letters, active from 1920 (for contextual comments on his earliest work, see Bulgaria). The sf tales and Fabulations assembled in The Lady with the X-Ray Eyes (coll trans Krassimira Noneva 1965 Bulgaria), which brings together work originally published 1928-1965, are sharp, occasionally didactic, and expose a sometimes insistent irony. This text is not a translation of a 1934 Bulgarian collection with the same title. [JC]
