Viktor Romanovich Khovin (1891 - late 1940s) was a multifaceted figure in the literary world, serving as a critic, publisher, journalist, and bookseller. He was also the director and proprietor of the Ocharovannyi Strannik [The Enchanted Wanderer] publishing house and the Book Corner bookstore. His work "To This Day" is a stirring pamphlet that serves as a manifesto for the "authentic" futurists, vehemently criticizing Proletkult and the government's efforts to dictate new "rules of the game" for artistic expression.
