German Umaralievich Sadulaev (Russian: Герман Умаралиевич Садулаев, born 2 February 1973) is a Chechen writer.
German Sadulaev’s first book, Radio FUCK, told city tales of the thirty-something generation in St Petersburg. It made no mention of Chechnya. With the publication of his second book, I am a Chechen!, critics acclaimed Sadulaev as "the literary find of the year" . Much more than a war novel, it was a lyrical fusion of exotic legends, stories and memories, nominated for the National Bestseller prize. Sadulaev's next work, Snowstorm, or The Myth of the End of the World, was a grotesque fantasy satire about social Darwinism. It won the Eureka prize. Sadulaev’s fourth book, The Maya Pill, was shortlisted for the 2008 Russian Booker  and for the 2009 National Bestseller .
