Nicholas Beck | 2 comments Tons of obscure Russian authors from all eras all translated into English, when I've finished moving I'll try to come up with a list of sorts

I don't know about continued existence in some form, but I remember a time in the early 1990s when Progress Publishers was in the process of destroying their inventory of books by giving it to paper recycling. The original founder of the Marx internet archive sent out an announcement about how he had acquired some of their literature for scanning purposes by rescuing the books from being "pulped." So if there is any exstence at all, it's severely emaciated.

Nathan "N.R." Gaddis (nathannrgaddis) | 985 comments Lots a lotsa. It'd be great if you could provide some highlights of that list when you get a chance to settle into your new digs. Anyone else here familiar with some of those unfamiliar names?

Ned Rifle | 10 comments I found a story by Vladimir Dudintsev down the side of the seat when I got on the underground one day. It was torn from a book and bound with a paperclip, it fitted the length of the journey perfectly. I think it was called The White Birch, I still have it somewhere and have felt ever since that I owed the underground a story.
