Vladimir Volkoff (1932-2005) was born in Paris, the son of White Russian émigrés. He was a member of the faculty of Agnes Scott College and taught creative writing at Mercer University. Holder of a doctoral degree from the Université de Liège, he was an intelligence officer in the French army during the Algerian War. Known primarily for his espionage fiction, he was a prolific writer who also published essays, poems, plays, biographies, science fiction, and the wildly popular LIEUTENANT X spy novels for youth. He was made a chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur and won many literary prizes, including the Grand Prix du Roman, awarded by the French Academy.
