38. Inhabited Island
Series: Fantastic Travel Destinations
Another poster based on the great books by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky. The civilisation(s) hypothesised here are different from the types which are commonly found in western SF. A bizarre 'atmospheric lensing' makes it seem to everyone that the ground bends upwards in all directions. I have probably failed to simulate that here...!
This book is terriffic, very different from 'Roadside Picnic' but also highly unpredictable. It has submarine pilot cannibals.
