More > extraterrestrials. They had landed in a number of evenly spaced "Visitation Zones" in which all human and animal life suddenly disappeared.

Macmillan's Soviet science fiction series continues with another work by the remarkable Strugatsky brothers, authors of this spring's Roadside Picnic and The Troika. Their hero is Maxim Kammerer, a... More > planetary reconnaissance agent gifted with unusual senses and powers, who finds himself stranded on a world of lethal paradoxes. The natives have perfected atomic warfare and mass thought control yet labor under Alice-in-Wonderland delusions about the nature of their own solar system. Maxim's first trusting attempts at communication give way to bewilderment and rage at the institutionalized insanity around him. Rashly leaping into the affairs of an oppressed underground, he blunders into successively higher and crueler levels of official intrigue.
