Format: Paperback
"Those Who Survive" (original Russian title - "Pereval") from the very first magazine appearance became legendary masterpeace of Russian literary SF. It had a tone, it had a style, it was unusual in wonders of alien world and liveable in human charachters. Just hope John Costello accurately brings all colors of the Bulychev's book to English. It really deserves to be read.

This is a masterpiece of SF from my childhood. I love it!
"Star Wars" and something else are poor and easy.

I wonder why we don't have more Russian authors translated. Those who do not like SCIFI will be instantly converted. An excellent book.

This book is written in a very different, "Lord of the Flies"- like outlook to the distant future. It's more of an adventure story, but very interesting to read, nonetheless. It captivates you perfectly.

Format: Paperback
The best SF book I ever read. In russian it is called not Pereval(it is the name of the first part), but Posyolok which means Settlement. By the way the book is third or fourth in series about doctor Pavlysh but can be read alone because Pavlysh here is not a leading hero. The whole series though deserves to be translated.
