ENTER THE ADMINISTRATION

Peretz spends his days navigating the bureaucracy of the Administration, the institute tasked with governing the Forest below. Except no one ever seems to go there, and his attempts only trap him further within the workings of this strange organisation.

ENTER THE FOREST

Candide cannot remember how he got to the Forest, and he is certain he belongs somewhere else. Determined to escape, he finds that all paths lead him round strange bends and into encounters with bizarre creatures.

NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS

This classic SF novel sees Boris and Arkady Strugatsky meditate on how little man can understand of the wider world, and in doing so produce one of the great literary works to come out of Soviet Russia.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A marvellous, subtle, funny book - Eric Korn, Sunday Times

A fantastic vision of extraordinary power, a difficult, demanding but rewarding work - The Times Literary Supplement

The Snail on the Slope may be the most dizzyingly concentrated dose of the Strugatskys' strange and powerful medicine - Jonathan Letham

[Arkady and Boris Strugatsky] open windows in the mind and then fail to close them at all, so that, putting down one of their books, you feel a cold breeze still lifting the hairs on the back of your neck - New York Times

Approached as a meditation on the human inability to comprehend more than a very small part of the universe, this is a surprisingly satisfying, if often perplexing, work - Publisher's Weekly
