Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904) was a Russian doctor, dramatist and short-story writer, born in Taganrog.

Chekhov began writing as a medical student. His first book of stories, published in 1886 was successful.

His other works include The Seagull (Chayka, 1896), Uncle Vanya (Dyadya Vanya, 1900), The Three Sisters (Tri sestry, 1901), The Cherry Orchard (Vishnyovy sad, 1904) and a host of short stories.

He’s often considered to be one of the best short story writers, ever.

Chances are the Star Trek character, Pavol Chekhov is named after him. The Star Trek creators had a knack for recasting famous names and ideas into Sci-fi. This arguably helps the show resonate within viewers’ collective unconscious.
