On the recording of the TV show "Night Shift" Dmitry Dibrov mentions Svetlana's real name and that she is the real author of the "cult writer" Max Fry's books.
At the same time, Maxim Kryutchenko, director of Azbuka Publishing House, is trying to register "Max Fry" as a trademark of his publishing house.
The result was a scandal!
And Max Fry stopped cooperating with Azbuka and switched to cooperating with Amfora Publishers.
Cooperation with Amfora Publishing House
Max Fry's collaboration with Amfora Publishers, which began in 2001, turned out to be very fruitful: in addition to publishing books about Sir Max and other fantasy novels, the joint project "Fram" was launched, the name of which was formed from the words "Fry" and "Amfora".
The project lasted ten years.
At present, Svetlana Martynchik writes under the pen name "Max Fry," without a co-author.
Cooperation with AST Publishing House
Since 2014, Max Fry's books, as well as collections of short stories compiled by him, have been published by AST.
