The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
Grigory Belykh (1906-1938) and Leonid Panteleyev (1908-1987) were writers and coauthors on the autobiographical work, The Republic of Shkid. Belykh (his last name derives from the Russian word “white,” and he used the pseudonym Chyornykh, from the word for “black”) was arrested and died in prison of tuberculosis. Panteleyev (real name Alexei Yeremeyev), who had been writing since early in childhood, had a luckier fate, and lived to pen dozens of stories and memoirs, some of the former of which were turned into films.
