Heinrich Copernick and Martin Guibedo came to the States as penniless refugees after World War II. By 1999 they had made huge fortunes in the field of medical instrumentation. But Heiny and his Uncle Martin weren’t just filthy rich, they were also the world’s best gene engineers. And their latest inventions could free Humanity from want and oppressive governments forever. At least, that was the plan.

Imagine: Free homes with all the furnishings and utilities! Free food! Even free babysitters! Heiny and Uncle Martin even thought they should give their inventions away. Free.

That’s when their troubles began.

A book by Leo Frankovski

Leo Frankovski was born on February 13, 1943 in Detroit. Before he got to the seventh grade, he changed seven schools and continued to "wander" in the same spirit and further. By the age of forty-five, he had worked in more than a hundred positions, including being a "scientist" in an electro-optic research laboratory, gardener, aviator, chief engineer and president of the company. Most of all, he worked in the chemical and optical industries and instrumentation and received several patents in the United States. Since 1977, he has owned and operated Sterling Manufacturing & Design, Detroit`s only female-dominated engineering company. The company develops electrical and fluid control devices and sensors for construction equipment, and also manufactures formitrol, an elastic material used in the restoration of old cars. After some time, he "got tired of working on projects and now spends most of his time studying literature and his various hobbies," including reading, chess, flying kites, drinking wine, making and drinking honey, dancing with girls and culinary delights. He was a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism and was an active member of the American science fandom, served on the board of two writing clubs. All his life he was a bachelor. But in 2001, an unexpected turn happened in his life: Leo Frankovski met a Russian woman through an agency, married her and moved to live in Russia. For more than five years he lived with his wife and her teenage daughter in Tver and built his own castle. Their marriage eventually fell apart, Frankowski divorced and returned to the United States to write the final novel about Konrad Stargard, but did not have time to do so. He died on Christmas Day 2008 in Lake Elsinore, California. In the early 1970s, Frankovski first became seriously interested in science fiction. I tried to write stories, tried (unsuccessfully) to publish in the Analog magazine. Frankowski`s first published book is The Cross-Time Engineer. It was published in 1986 by Del Rey. Although he wrote his first novel much earlier; it was Copernick`s Rebellion, published only 13 years after it was written, in 1987. Frankovsky was nominated for the "John Campbell Award" -1987 as the best aspiring writer.

In the same publishing house "Del Rey" he published the following six novels related to the cycle "The Adventures of Konrad Stargard". Then "Del Rey" (dissatisfied with how the show was selling?) Canceled Frankowski`s contract. The writer proudly reported that the "donkey" that drove him out of "Del Rey" was the same thing that he once did with Heinlein himself. Eight years later, Baen Books approached the writer with a publication proposal. They entered into an agreement to republish the author`s previous books. In the same publishing house, two new novels were published, adjoining the cycle about Konrad Stargard. Also new books by the author were published here. However, the seventh novel of the cycle about Stargard, co-authored with Roger Olsen, also married to a Russian (they met in Russia), he had to publish at his own expense. The hero of this cycle, a Polish engineer of the 80s Konrad Schwartz, accidentally gets into a time machine and finds himself in Poland in the 13th century. There he has to change his last name (sounds too German) and ultimately manages to turn Poland into the main European power, capable of stopping the Mongol invasion. The plot is well known to the readers of the "Men`s Club". The fifth novel in the series (Conrad`s Quest For Rubber) deviates from the direct storyline and follows the adventures of an expedition sent by Conrad to South America. The sixth novel (Conrad`s Time Machine) is the backstory: it describes the invention of the time machine and the people who control it. And only in the seventh novel, Lord Conrad`s Crusade, Frankovski returns to his hero. Frankowski managed to start two more cycles in collaboration (in part) with the famous military psychologist, West Point Professor Dave Grossman. "New Kashubia" (New Kashubia) tells about the struggle of the inhabitants of a poor space colony for survival. Two-Space is a space opera in which humans, elves and gnomes roam the universe in sentient sailing ships and swear by the name of Tolkien. Taken from http://fantlab.ru/
