For over a century, most of the science fiction produced by the world's largest country has been beyond the reach of Western readers. This new collection aims to change that, bringing a large body of influential works into the English orbit. A scientist keeps a severed head alive, and the head lives to tell the tale... An explorer experiences life on the moon, in a story written six decades before the first moon landing... Electrical appliances respond to human anxieties and threaten to crash the electrical grid... Archaeologists discover strange powers emanating from a Central Asian excavation site... A teleporting experiment goes awry, leaving a subject to cope with a bizarre sensory swap... A boy discovers the explosive truth of his father's "antiseptic" work, stamping out dissent on distant worlds... The last 100 years in Russia have seen an astonishing diversity and depth of literary works in the science fiction genre, by authors with a dizzying array of styles and subject matter. This volume brings together 18 such works, translated into English for the first time, spanning from path-breaking, pre-revolutionary works of the 1890s, through the difficult Stalinist era, to post-Soviet stories published in the 1980s and 1990s.

Tales of Suspense and Horror (illustrated): 50+ Weird and Terrifying Stories by Edgar Allan Poe, H. P. Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, Ambrose Bierce, Arthur Machen, Bram Stoker, E. F. Benson, J. Sheridan Le Fanu, Mary Shelley, Robert W. Chambers, William Hope Hodgson, Nikolai Gogol If modern books on the paranormal seem dull to you, the horrors predictable, and suspense stories worthy of a casual yawn, then it is time to return to the classic origins of horror and thrill genres. Enter, dear reader, into the pages which birthed those vampires, zombies, werewolves, ghosts, demons and other evils which now inhabit our modern fantasy and mystical works. Be assured that the plots of these classical suspense stories, while crackling with XIX and XX century atmosphere, are no less sophisticated or fantastical than today’s premier writers of the genre. You may even discover the inspiration for stories written by Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Dean Kuntz, and others.
