Inhaltsangabe: An historical novel based on the life of Alexander Bulatovich, a Russian who was an explorer in Ethiopia, a cavalry officer during Russia's conquest of Manchuria in 1900, and later, as a monk at Mount Athos, led a group of "heretics" who challenged the hierarchy of the Russian Orthodox Church, asserting the divinity of the Name of God. (Originally published by Tarcher/Houghton Mifflin.) Set in early 20th century Manchuria, the Boxer Rebellion raging throughout the coutnry, the Name of Hero involves readers in the strange career of Alexander Xavierevich Bulatovich of His Majesty's Life Guard Hussar Regimetn. Plotted in the panoramic tradition of James Michener, this historical novel blends fact, fiction, and adventure. It tells of women and war, of turbulent events sparked off by religion and railroads, and the tension between facts and faith. Richard Seltzer's published works include: "The Name of Hero" (historical novel, Tarcher/Houghton Mifflin), "Ethiopia Through Russian Eyes" (translation from the Russian, Red Sea/Africa World Press), "The Lizard of Oz" (satiric fantasy, B&R Samizdat Express), and "Now and Then and Other Tales from Ome" (children's stories, B&R Samizdat Express), and four books about doing business over the Internet. Now a publisher of book collections on CD and DVD, he worked for Digital/Compaq for 19 years, most recently as "Internet Evangelist." He graduated from Yale, with a major in English, and got an MA from the U. of Mass. at Amherst in Comparative Literature (French, Russian, and German). At Yale, he had creative writing courses with Robert Penn Warren and Joseph Heller.
