Boborykin, I. A. Goncharov, N. S. Leskov, D. N. Mamin-Sibiriak, D. S. Merezhkovskii, L. N. Tolstoi, A. P. Chekhov, I. A. Bunin, and A. A. Blok.

Beginning in 1891 the collected works of many Russian and foreign writers were issued in the form of free supplements to Niva, which gave the magazine a large circulation and popularity.
