BORODIN, George


BORODIN, George
   Pseudonym of USSR-born surgeon and writer, George Alexis Milkomanovich Milkomane (1903-), who lived in the UK for many years from 1932; one of his pseudonyms, George Alexis Bankoff, was for some time thought to be his real name, but he himself has asserted the contrary. Other pseudonyms include George Braddon, Peter Conway, Alec Redwood and - best known - George Sava, under which name he wrote The Healing Knife (1938), a bestseller about his profession, and many novels, none of sf interest, for ROBERT HALE LIMITED. As GB he wrote a political tract, Peace in Nobody's Time (1944), The Book of Joanna: A Fantasy Based on Historical Legend (1947), in which a heavenly conclave attempts to determine the truth about the legend of the 9th-century Pope Joan, and Spurious Sun (1948; vt The Threatened People undated), a ponderously told but cogently meditated tale about the effects of a nuclear explosion in Scotland; against the odds, world peace comes closer.
