Aleksandr Stepanovich Grinevsky (better known by his pen name, Aleksandr Grin, August 23, 1880 – July 8, 1932) was a Russian writer, notable for his romantic novels and short stories, mostly set in an unnamed fantasy land with a European or Latin American flavor (Grin's fans often refer to this land as Grinlandia). Most of his writings deal with sea, adventures, and love.

"Scarlet Sails" (1923) is a simple but powerful love story, perhaps the most famous of Grin's works.
