A regular contributor to Sovremennik, Delo and Russkoye Slovo, Sheller published numerous stories, poems, translations, articles and essays, often using the pseudonym A.Mikhaylov, and is sometimes referred to as A.K. Sheller-Mikhaylov. His best-known novel was Gnilyie bolota (Putrid Moors, 1864), followed by Zhizn Shupova (The Life of Shupov, 1865) and Staryie gnyozda (Old Nests, 1875). The Complete Works of A.K. Sheller-Mikhaylov in 15 volumes came out in 1895.[1][2]
