Join us as we discuss Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky (translated by Olena Bormashenko)

Arkady and Boris Strugatsky are the most famous and popular Russian writers of science fiction, and Roadside Picnic is included on almost every list of the hundred greatest science-fiction novels. The Strugatskys’ deft and supple handling of loyalty and greed, of friendship and love, of despair and frustration and loneliness produces a truly superb tale. Roadside Picnic was the basis for Andrei Tarkovsky’s filmic masterpiece Stalker, as well as the immensely popular S.T.A.L.K.E.R. video game series.
