«When we ran out of children’s books to read at our house, I began to invent a fairy-tale to entertain my small daughters. It was just a fun game at first.
 But little by little I got into it. I kept mulling over the storyline and over time I worked out various unexpected twists and turns. The characters seemed to have assumed a life of their own as they did things that even I had never anticipated. I realized that the story was begging to be put on paper, so I pulled out a thick school notebook and sat down at my desk.»

 In early 1995 Alderosa’s Daughter, the first volume of The Cup of Galfar series, was released. We organized a small print run in Voronezh, Russia, and it didn’t go unnoticed. Two local newspapers gave positive, even rave, reviews. Unfortunately, the book remained virtually unknown to the general reader interested in this genre. Today we are trying to fill in this gap, offering you an electronic version of the book.

For me as a reader The Cup of Galfar brought back the best memories of my book-reading childhood, as it is written in the best traditions of the classic Russian and world adventure and fantasy novels. The author, whose writing style is simple but succinct and rich, creates a world (that is, several worlds!) behind the lines of text. It draws you into the story so that you begin to witness the fascinating adventures as if invisibly present there. For me as a translator this was an exciting challenge – to try to convey all of the charm and integrity of the style and storyline to the English reader. I cannot describe the book as exclusively young-reader-oriented. Like other worthy specimens of the genre, it will be of interest to adult readers as well. The Cup of Galfar will definitely become part of our family book collection. I am a bit jealous of my own kids who are yet to discover the wonderful world of this book!

It was a very exciting task to work on the translation of this book. The mixing of different language levels and the author’s particular gift in certain nature descriptions and other genre pieces was of special interest to me despite the inevitable translation challenges. The Cup of Galfar has be illustrated. I feel that this is inevitable – the author himself paints as he writes.
