Arkady and Boris Strugatsky

ARKADY & BORIS STRUGATSKY were born in 1925 and 1933, respectively. Arkady died in 1991. They blazed trails in Soviet science fiction, becoming immensely popular in the 1960s and 1970s. Their stories were renowned for their rejection of Stalin-era totalitarianism and for their use of rich, colloquial language. One of their most famous novels, Piknik (Roadside Picnic), was turned into the movie Stalker, by Andrei Tarkovsky.
