Sergey Gerasimov lives in Kharkov, Ukraine. It is a country in a remote region of the world (somewhere in the geographical center of Europe), where no one speaks English, but finds it convenient to speak Ukrainian and Russian instead. He graduated from Kharkov University as a theoretical physicist and worked for ten years teaching physics. Later, he became interested in psychology, and has published some theoretical psychology articles in Russian academic journals and magazines and a book about the psychology of ideas, published electronically in Russia. He started writing fiction in 1991, and about a hundred of stories, three hardcover novels, and two paperback novels had appeared in various places before he decided to write in English. Since 2006, his stories have appeared, among other places, in Clarkesworld Magazine, Fantasy Magazine, Adbusters, Strange Horizons, and Oceans of the Mind. The Mask Game is his first novel written in the English language.
