A familiar commodity researchers and workers publisher Nick got out of the book by Tolkien in English and translated independently of. (Thanks to this, he mastered the language so that even a penny was a simultaneous interpreter!) And then I realized that he could not stay and must live in this fantasy world beyond. Inserted a blank sheet into the typewriter and began to publish his ideas about it. Sam Perumov calls it "literary game". This is how the trilogy of "Ring of Darkness". It was written by Nick for herself and friends and had his whole life lie in a desk drawer. But quite by chance that the text was in the hands of the host computer company. It happened in 1991, when the computer trade only began. And he at that time was selling computers Stavropol publishing "Caucasian library" and invited them to this manuscript. They thought for a long time, almost two years, only released the first volume of a trilogy, and, finally, the rights to the book went to the publisher of the North-West. Novel has caused the most mixed reviews. His readers were divided into two camps: the passionate and hard-core opponents who, even now, several years after the novel, can not forgive Nick that he "dared to aim a blow at the reputation of Tolkien."
