By Boris Strugatzki, Arkadi Strugatzki

ISBN-10: 3453526317

ISBN-13: 9783453526310

Gesammelte Werke 2 beinhaltet drei Titel aus dem Gesamtwerk (Gesammelte Werke 1, Gesammelte Werke three, Gesammelte Werke four, Gesammelte Werke five) der Strugatzki-Brüder: Picknick am Wegesrand, Eine Milliarde Jahre vor dem Weltuntergang und Das scan - im Anhang befindet sich noch ein Kommentar von Boris Strugatzki, ein Beitrag von Karlheinz Steinmüller, Anmerkungen zur Übersetzung und ein Überblick über die wichtigsten Werke der Brüder.

Picknick am Wegesrand dürfte wohl einer der bekanntesten Romane der Brüder sein (von Tarkowski als Stalker verfilmt) und beschreibt die Geschichte von Roderick Schuchart, der die sogenannten Zonen, von unbekannten außerirdischen Besuchern verseuchte und mit rätselhaften Objekten durchsetzte Gebiete erforscht und felony und unlawful mit gefunden Objekten handelt.

In Eine Milliarde Jahre vor dem Weltuntergang beschreiben die Strugatzkis den Versuch des Physikers Maljanow, ein physikalisches Rätsel zu lösen und eine unbekannten Macht (Außerirdische?) versucht, ihn an dieser Forschung zu hindern.

In Das test lebt Andrej Woronin in einer künstlichen Stadt, deren Bewohner Teil eines Experiments sind, dessen Ziel sie aber nicht kennen.

Die Phantastik der russischen Strugatzkis setzt einen menschlich-psychologischen Schwerpunkt der angesichts heutiger Tempo-Phantastik oft widerständig und ungewohnt wirkt und genau wegen dieser denkblockadenlösenden Wirkung eine unbedingte Lesempfehlung darstellt. --Wolfgang Treß/
