Arkady Strugatsky, Boris Strugatsky WANDERERS AND TRAVELLERS The water in the pool was not very cold, but all the same I was frozen.

I had to sit without moving, for septopods are sensitive and suspicious animals, they are frightened off by the slightest sound or any abrupt movement and will disappear, to return only ...

Anatoly Dneprov Siema Late at night someone knocked loudly at the door of my compartment. I sprang up, still half asleep, and switched on the light. The teaspoons were rattling in the empty glasses on the table in rhythm with the motion of the train. I reached for my shoes. The knock was repeated, louder and more insistent. I opened the door. It was the conductor. Behind him stood a tall man in a pair of badly creased striped pajamas. Excuse me for troubling you, said the conductor in a ...
