1 Magidoff, Robert (editor) Russian Science Fiction : 1968 (An Anthology)
New York New York University Press 1968 First Edition, First Printing 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full blue cloth. The spine is stamped in metallic red. Octavo. [xii] + 211pps. There is mild bumping to the spine-ends and a brief gift inscription is penned on the ffep. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light touches of rubbing and crinkling at the extremities; the original price is intact. Includes thirteen short stories by Gor, Rosokhvatsky, Podolny, Dnieprov, Voisunsky & Lukodyanov, Bulichev, Yarov, Emtsov & Parnov, Zhuravleva, Varshavsky, Safronov, and Bakhnov. Translated into English by Helen Jacobson. Also includes an Introduction by the editor.

"...Here is a new collection of Soviet science fiction that is calculated to delight and entertain the reader as much as to reflect the current temper of Soviet society. These are the livliest and best written of Soviet output, and they show that the science fiction genre has finally come of age in the U.S.S.R. In mood they range from lyricism to humor, from the grotesque to sheer wackiness.
No longer do the Soviet writers deal in the stereotypes of the greedy, capitalistic exploiter, the murderous American spy, and the imperialist network of sabotage. The unbearably noble Bolshevik counteragent has, happily, been laid to rest, too. Instead, the stories have grown in universal appeal and show the authors to be preoccupied with social problems, human values, and high ideals..."
