The renowned sf writers from Russia do not have a thread yet??
I got reminded recently that they have been treated awfully in English translation: double translations or translations full of mistakes. Then Orthofer (Mr Complete Review) recently twittered that there is a new translation upcoming of one of their best books and at the same time one of the all time classics of sf:
The book that was the basis for Tarkovsky's Stalker.
But why for christ's sake is the translator not even mentioned on the webpage??
