Sandra | 23191 comments Russian author, Сергей Малицкий who appears to only write in Russian, and has his cryllic name on all book covers.

However, several books were imported with his Latin name Sergey Malitsky even though the Russian name is on the cover of the books.

lethe | 13664 comments There is a Sergey Malitsky listed in Worldcat with English titles, but all in the field of biology/science.
