Summary (From the publisher):

Tales of tomorrow--as the Russians see it

Astronauts who make 700-year flights into the cosmos, pathogenic micro-organisms preserved with loving care, eager scientists who perform dangerous experiments on themselves--these are among some of the varied themes encountered in these fantastic stories.

This second Collier Book of science fiction from the U.S.S.R. provides a revealing glimpse of the Russian concept of an ideal future society. It is also an interesting contrast to such books as George Orwell's 1984 and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, which envisage a future quite unlike the one implied in these stories.

  • The Heart of the Serpent by Ivan Yefremov
  • Siema by Anatoly Dnieprov
