    This book may have been given to me as a joke, but I read it in earnest, which seems the best way to read this book Reading older science fiction is often an exercise in sympathy, even so than when reading older non sf lit because of the evolution of scientific theories well, yes, you have to say, clearly we don t believe this theory to be an accurate representation of the world now, so this isn t the question we would ask, but at the time, I can see how this would be a serious question This book may have been given to me as a joke, but I read it in earnest, which seems the best way to read this book Reading older science fiction is often an exercise in sympathy, even so than when reading older non sf lit because of the evolution of scientific theories well, yes, you have to say, clearly we don t believe this theory to be an accurate representation of the world now, so this isn t the question we would ask, but at the time, I can see how this would be a serious question The works in question here are not that old, but they are couched in a scientific view of history that we mostly no longer hold that human labor is our most precious resource and that correct application of this labor will enable us to communally harness all the natural forces and take our place among and as brothers to the stars If that sounds like an eschatological dream, there s a reason for that beyond a certain point in the future, Soviet theory has no vision of history In contemporary SF, we call that point the Singularity So, while these stories run through some typical sf tropes first contact with aliens, the invention of artificial intelligence life, tracking down a mysterious illness, the development of psychic powers what s common and most notable about them is that the info dumps are mostly humanitarian That is, whereas the You know, Bob speeches often tell the reader the scientific issues at stake made up for convenience You know, Bob, the pan galactic gargle blaster is the best ice breaker in these stories, when the characters the narrator break character to tell the reader something, the something that we need to know is usually that humans are the goal of the world and that human forces are always on the verge of moving us forward.Asimov s introduction notices this Utopian bent to these stories, and goes on to argue that we should believe that these are true stories that are not being produced only to fool us that the Soviets really want peace Again, that may not be an interesting issue in our day, but in 62, I can see why Asimov would ve considered that issue earnestly.Ivan Yefremov, The Heart of the Serpent 1959 Anatoly Dnieprov, Siema 1958 Victor Saparin, The Trial of Tantalus 1959 Valentina Zhuravleva, Stone from the Stars 1960 Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, Six Matches 1959

    The Introduction by Asimov alone is worth the entire book In trying to compare Soviet science fiction to American, Asimov proposes a three part time line to the genre 1 Science Fiction as Grand Adventure 2 Science Fiction as a discourse on Technology 3 Science Fiction as a sociological discourse He then breaks these thirds into three parts gambits each What If stories, If Only stories, and If This Goes On stories and even shows how some American and Soviet Russian sci fi blends di The Introduction by Asimov alone is worth the entire book In trying to compare Soviet science fiction to American, Asimov proposes a three part time line to the genre 1 Science Fiction as Grand Adventure 2 Science Fiction as a discourse on Technology 3 Science Fiction as a sociological discourse He then breaks these thirds into three parts gambits each What If stories, If Only stories, and If This Goes On stories and even shows how some American and Soviet Russian sci fi blends different parts and gambits of the time line.His explanation is quite conversational and easy to understand Never thought of sci fi in such an evolutionary chronological way before Fascinating

    But we could put it this way, too man s conquest of space, his knowledge of the Universe, clashed with the primitive thinking of the individualistic property owner The future and the very life of humanity hung in the balance for years before progress triumphed and mankind joined into one family in a classless society Before that happened people in the capitalistic half of the world refused for a long time to see any new paths into the future and regarded their mode of life as eternal and uncBut we could put it this way, too man s conquest of space, his knowledge of the Universe, clashed with the primitive thinking of the individualistic property owner The future and the very life of humanity hung in the balance for years before progress triumphed and mankind joined into one family in a classless society Before that happened people in the capitalistic half of the world refused for a long time to see any new paths into the future and regarded their mode of life as eternal and unchanging, with war and self destruction as man s inevitable lot I picked up this random little book from my late cousin s large SciFi collection over a year ago There are five rather long short stories included here, as well as an enlightening forward by Isaac Asimov I found the included stories a little on the dull side generally, but still intriguing as a whole due to the specific Soviet worldview and school of thought displayed throughout.For me, the thought of what else was going on in the USSR during the time that these stories were written the Gulag labor camps, for instance was particularly striking and sobering Read this to round out your knowledge of both earlier Science Fiction and 20th century Russian history and political thought.Related Reads The Oxford Book of Science Fiction StoriesOne Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Solzhenitsyn

    Kind of a bland collection, but not surprising considering who compiled it Even the Strugatsky brothers story was less interesting than others I ve found in other collections Most of the stories were muchconcerned about describing the science than telling a good tale Not that that s really a bad thing, but it gets a little boring Still wishing someone would publish an English collection of Strugatsky short stories


  6. Michael Michael says:

    A fascinating look at not only fiction constrained by a censorial state, but also an example of the science fiction genre heavily focused on technological concerns.
