HASH(0x900cc8a0) out of 5 stars Old "new" soviet science fiction 25 Jun. 2015
By Keith T Gibson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
These stories are just not very impressive; some of them are ok, while others are barely science fiction at all, but certainly none of them are memorable. Basically, the longer a story is, the better it is. Most of the stories were taking place in the near future (at the time of writing, that is)

HASH(0x8fb0d444) out of 5 stars In Soviet Union, book reviews You!! 9 Dec. 2010
By Scott Rawlings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Okay, seriously. I picked this book up around 1997 I think, at Twice Sold Tales in Seattle. I got it mostly to be iconoclastic, I think, and because I was curious about what sort of stories the Russians told themselves about the future. I mean, you get to learn about a culture though its fantacies, right? Isn't that what Thrawn said? I'm afraid it's mostly a dissapointment, I found a lot of the stories to be overly short and simplistic, and I had a sense that I was loosing something in the translation. I'm going to hang on to it though and leaf through it on rainy nights. When you're a kid during the waning years of the Cold War you can't help but have a morbid curiosity about what was going on behind the Iron Curtain and this is an interesting peak at what got past the censors.
