Young Adult Content Award – Best fantasy author (for 2021 awarded in 2022)

Max Maximov has published already several scifi novels in the best tradition of the Strugatski brothers. His books are also timely parables exploring guilt and innocence, hell and paradise, life and spirit, nothingness and the morality of algorithms. As though in parallel worlds or in different dimensions, the reader is taken along two plots lines which at first glance do not seem connected in any way. The connection only becomes clear in the course of or towards the end of the story. This alternation between parallel plotlines has become a trademark of Maximov.
