Translated into English by Helen Jacobson. Also includes an Introduction by the editor.

"...Here is a new collection of Soviet science fiction that is calculated to delight and entertain the reader as much as to reflect the current temper of Soviet society. These are the livliest and best written of Soviet output, and they show that the science fiction genre has finally come of age in the U.S.S.R. In mood they range from lyricism to humor, from the grotesque to sheer wackiness.
No longer do the Soviet writers deal in the stereotypes of the greedy, capitalistic exploiter, the murderous American spy, and the imperialist network of sabotage. The unbearably noble Bolshevik counteragent has, happily, been laid to rest, too. Instead, the stories have grown in universal appeal and show the authors to be preoccupied with social problems, human values, and high ideals..."
