The article is heavily dependent on quotes from Nikolai Tolstoy's work, but Nikolai Tolstoy is a well-known enemy of Soviet communism who might be biased against one of his (distant) relatives who was much lionized by those whom he despised. This seems to be rather lacking in balance - or even a character assassination. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:30, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Under the works section, this is listed: Lirika, a poetry collection (1907)
However, the link to Lirika goes to a "Grunge & Acoustic Rock band." I'm assuming this is not where we want the link to go. Maybe someone who knows more about Tolstoy can create a disambiguation page with info about the novel.
Why does this article have the seldom - though etymologically preferable - spelling of the author's name? Does this conform to Wik policy?
- Not at all. Let's move it to Aleksey Tolstoy --Ghirlandajo 16:45, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
- Good. Do it!
The article doesn't stick to a spelling of Mr. Tolstoy's name, it sometime randomly usues initials instead of the name, and it lacks proper grammar. It could use a total rewrite in my opinion, and if it isn't done by sometime later tonight or tomorrow I'll probably try to do it myself. Tev 21:46, 13 November 2005 (UTC)
Why not mention his son Nikita (who was a reasonably notable physicist) and gran daughter Tatyana Tolstaya? I saw Ghirlandajo, first mentioned Tatyana, then reverted himself, so there should be a reason, I just do not know which. abakharev 22:13, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
The Hyperboloid of Engineer Garin
There is clearly something wrong when an article has two different translation of the same work and two different publication date. Someone knowledgeable should correct this. Mhym 02:20, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
The Family of the Vourdalak (Sem'ya Vurdalaka) was written by another russian writer, Aleksey Konstantinovich Tolstoy, in 1839. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 08:49, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
War crimes investigator
"During World War II, he served on an Extraordinary State Commission which "ascertained without reasonable doubt" the mass extermination of people in gas vans by the German occupiers." As historical fiction and science fiction writer, he certainly was the best man for that job! --18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:57, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
