- Translated from Russian by Constance Garnett.
- Dover (2001) unabridged republication of a standard edition.
Complete and unabridged:
Collections of science fiction short stories, curated by.. people I don't know and who have no authority in my mind. They came into being pre-internet and still cling to relevancy.
I was excited to find these, but their stories are hit-and-miss.
This may take me quite some time to read through.
A classic work combining classic works.
I bought this because it's considered one of the great works of literature and has survived into common culture. Though I can see why this would have been popular at the time, especially thanks to the forward saying that the brief writing style was rare, I don't yet see why this would appeal to today's person. Perhaps it's just me, but so far I find the writing style rather insulting.

A famous work of philosophy, especially because it's told using a story.
A terrible work of storytelling that entirely shrouds any philosophy it may have. From the first sentence I rolled my eyes and couldn't make it through the first half-page before setting it down in disgust. I still haven't been more than a handful of pages in.. it's just so god damned bad.
This'll sit on my shelf, among its betters, probably for years before I get around to trying to read more of it. Just as books in ancient Greek need translating, I think this needs a real writer to re-tell the story.
