Picnic

Recently acquired: Roadside Picnic, by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky.

Because:
  1. Alleged by many to be the best Russian sci-fi ever.
  2. The basis of Tarkovsky's Stalker, by which swear several film enthusiasts I know.
  3. Two words: The. Zone.
  4. Abounding with alien artefacts.
  5. New translation.
  6. Foreword by Ursula K Leguin.
Have you read it? Or seen Stalker? Maybe you've played the video game? Is it everything they say it is?
