A darkly funny satire from the most acclaimed and popular Russian science-fiction writers.

Astrophysicist Dmitri Malianov is on the precipice of a major discovery – a Nobel Prize-worthy break though. Yet, home alone in his Leningrad apartment, his work is beginning to be stymied. Strange and improbable distractions are mounting around him – and he is not alone. Across the city, his scientific colleagues, all close to their own eureka moments, keep finding themselves subject to countless mysterious interruptions. Are they paranoid, or is a malign authority conspiring against them . . . ?

A science fiction classic from two Russian masters, One Billion Years to the End of the World is at turns both hilarious and suspenseful, while at its heart hides a quiet yet biting critique of Soviet totalitarianism.
