Product description

Review

''An expert new translation by Josh Billings…For at least three decades [the Strugatsky brothers] were the most popular science fiction writers in Russia and the most influential Russian science fiction writers in the world.'' --Paris Review Daily

''This is the Strugatskys at their best, at once silly and dead serious…It's a ripping good yarn, which translator Josh Billings has rendered with great energy and wit.'' --Los Angeles Review of Books

''Mysteries abound in this Russian science fiction classic written by two brothers as a send-up of the Agatha Christie-type upper-class murder mystery.'' --Vanity Fair

''If Russian sci-fi can be said to have a soul, it resides with the Brothers Strugatsky . . . Delightful, and a must-read for a new generation of sci-fi fans everywhere.'' --NPR

''There's enough dry humor to spark kindling . . . Delightful and melancholy by turns, and so satisfying to read.'' --New York Times Book Review
