Svetlana Bondarenko, four-time winner of the Strugatsky Brothers Literary Prize, told us that scholars from the DNR and other countries are preparing the Complete Works of Arkady and Boris Strugatsky for publication. She said, “Our team comes from Donetsk, Odessa, New York, Saratov, and St Petersburg; they processed all the material over more than ten years, collecting it in 30 volumes, it’s a complete edition of their fiction. We received full access to the complete archive of the writers, including letters and diaries, more than a decade ago. We think that it’ll take two to three years to complete the project. By the end of the year, we expect to publish in the first volume. True, we did have some trouble with copyrights, so we’ll release some volumes either in hard copy or electronically. Unlike most ‘complete works’ compilations, the Strugatsky oeuvre won’t be segmented into literary output, diaries, and letters. We decided to issue a chronological collection of their works. Each volume will cover one or two years in the life of writers. Under one cover, we’ll include science fiction versions works, interviews, articles, diary entries, and notebook jottings”.
