Red Schuhart is a stalker, one of those strange misfits who are compelled by some unknown force to venture illegally into the Zone and, in spite of the extreme danger, collect the mysterious artefacts that the alien visitors left scattered around. His life is dominated by the Zone and the thriving black market in the alien products. Even the nature of his daughter has been determined by the Zone. And it is for her that Red makes his last, tragic foray into the hazardous and hostile depths.

If you come back with swag – it’s a Miracle If you come back alive – it’s a Success If the patrol bullets miss you – it’s Luck And as for everything else – that’s Fate Zones are areas where the laws of nature have gone insane and life has either perished or become twisted beyond recognition. They were to be cut off from the world, lost and forgotten behind walls and fences. Criminals called stalkers explore the Zones in search of artefacts; small fragments of alien culture and technology that defy our understanding of reality. Jacob Moncke was there on Day One. Thirteen years later events conspire to draw him back as he becomes tangled in a web of conspiracy and murder. The Hollow Pilgrim follows in the footsteps of Roadside Picnic, the legendary scifi-classic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. With approval and a license from Boris Strugatsky (1933–2012), it brings the setting of Roadside Picnic to the modern era, while staying true to the original work in themes and atmosphere. “Ville Vuorela tells a gripping noir tale in the broken world of the Strugatskys’ Roadside Picnic, where no one is what they seem and happy endings are hard to come by. I really enjoyed it!” – Hannu Rajaniemi

The preface to the first American edition of the novel (MacMillan Publishing Co., Inc, New York, 1977) was written by Theodore Sturgeon. The film Stalker directed by Andrei Tarkovsky is loosely based on the novel, with a screenplay written by the Strugatskys. The story was written by Strugatsky brothers in 1971 (the first outlines written January 18-27, 1971 in Leningrad, with the final version completed between October 28 and November 3, 1971 in Komarovo.) In 1977, the novel was first published in the United States in English. Roadside Picnic was refused publication in the Soviet Union for eight years due to government censorship and numerous delays. The heavily censored different versions published between 1980 and 2000 have little in common with the original version written by the authors. Soviet censors rewrote major plot points, changed names of characters and dialog to better reflect the...

Ausserirdische Wesen haben die Erde besucht. Niemand hat sie gesehen, keiner weiss, woher sie kamen und wohin sie gegangen sind, doch in sechs Gebieten auf unserem Planeten haben sie unerklärliche Gegenstände und Erscheinungen zurückgelassen, eine Herausforderung an die irdische Wissenschaft. Vielleicht auch eine Bedrohung der Menschheit? Jedenfalls erforscht nicht nur das internationale Institut für ausserirdische Kulturen die Phänomene in den ”Besucherzonen“, auch allerlei obskure Privatleute zeigen reges Interesse an den fremden Maschinen. So ist in der Stadt Harmunt, am Rande einer der ”Zonen“, ein neuer Beruf entstanden: der ”Schatzgräber“, der die ausserirdischen Objekte auf eigene Rechnung und eigenes Risiko aus der ”Zone“ schmuggelt, doppelt bedroht von den unheimlichen Gefahren in der ”Zone“ und von den Soldaten des Kardons an ihrem Rande.

Picnics are happy occasions and have always been a diversion from every day cares. We think of the picnic as an outdoor meal, set on a blanket, usually in the middle of the day, featuring a hamper filled with tasty morsels and perhaps a bottle of wine, but historically picnics came in many forms, served any time of the day. This first culinary history reveals rustic outdoor dining in its more familiar and unusual forms, the history of the word itself, the cultural context of picnics and who arranged them, and, most important, the gastronomic appeal. Drawing on various media and literature, painting, music, and even sculpture, Walter Levy provides an engaging and enlightening history of the picnic.

DIVRoderick Nash’s classic study of changing attitudes toward wilderness during American history, as well as the origins of the environmental and conservation movements, has received wide acclaim since its initial publication in 1967. The Los Angeles Times listed it among the one hundred most influential books published in the last quarter century, Outside Magazine included it in a survey of “books that changed our world,” and it has been called the “Book of Genesis for environmentalists.” For the fifth edition, Nash has written a new preface and epilogue that brings Wilderness and the American Mind into dialogue with contemporary debates about wilderness. Char Miller’s foreword provides a twenty-first-century perspective on how the environmental movement has changed, including the ways in which contemporary scholars are reimagining the dynamic relationship between the natural world and the built environment./div
