Armageddon Buffet loves Soviet-era science fiction. It’s so dark, so dreary, so Armageddon-like. Like much of Western science fiction of the era, the Strugatsky brothers captured the “doomsday” spirit of the End Times with their fiction, and even anticipated Chernobyl.
Here’s one Strugatsky story our editor published: A Beetle in an Anthill.
And our editor, Stephen Potts, wrote the book about the Strugatsky brothers!
This is one of the rare editorials not written by Editor Stephen Potts. Instead it’s written by Noam Daguerre – the better to ensure he won’t be fired for writing it!
