    So figured DLP&Chill needed some love,

    For the year of 2020, lets read some books, I picked some of my favorites to kick things off but until we get about 24 I don't want to start a serious thread. If at all possible I will track down ePubs and PDFs for all the fics so no one has to waste money.

    Poll is here, I'll close it the 31st of December, and we'll probably start reading around then, it is multiple choice.

    Whoops, made it multiple choice instead of Checkboxes, fixed

    Can I recommend some more?

    While everyone in the West knows Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, Gogol and Pushkin were equally influential, if not more so. To truly get a sense of the Russian novel in the 19th century, you have to include at least Eugene Onegin (Pushkin) and Dead Souls (Gogol).

    Then there is all the Soviet literature from the 20th century. Five I'd recommend -

    Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita - quite possibly the best Soviet era novel.
    Zamyatin's We - influenced both 1984 and Brave New World
    Pelevin's Omon Ra and Generation P (in English available as Homo Zapiens or Babylon)
    Strugatsky's Roadside Picnic - the origin of S.T.A.L.K.E.R and Stalker.
