Different planet different epoch different consciousness different psychology how will observers or spies or watchmen from the future Earth succeed in their mission of controlling the alien history even if it resembles so much our own medieval period of dark ages In the depths of the forest a mile away from the road beneath an enormous tree that had dried up of old age stood a lopsided hut made out of enormous logs surrounded by a blackened picket fence It had been here since the beginning of time its door was always shut and there were crooked idols carved from whole tree trunks around its rotting porch This hut was the most dangerous place in the Hiccup Forest It was said that this was the very place to which the ancient Pekh would come every twelve years to deliver his offspring after which he would immediately crawl beneath the hut and expire so the hut s entire cellar was filled with black poison And when the poison seeped out that s when the end would come It was said that on stormy nights the idols dug themselves out of the ground came out onto the road and signaled to passersby And it was also said that sometimes the windows shone with unnatural light sounds resounded through the forest and a column of smoke reached up from the chimney to the skyNot long ago Irma Kukish a sober simpleton from the farmstead of Plenitude in common parlance Stinkfield foolishly wandered by the hut at night and peered into the windows He came home completely incoherent and after he recovered a little said that the hut was full of bright light and that a man with his feet on the bench sat behind a crude table and guzzled from a barrel held in one hand The man s face hung all the way down to his waist and was spotted all over It was obvious that this was the Holy M ca himself before his conversion to the faith a polygamist drunkard and blasphemer To look at him was to be afraid A sickly sweet smell wafted out the window and shadows moved across the trees People gathered from all over to hear the idiot s story And it all ended when the storm troopers came bent his elbows to his shoulder blades and hustled him off to the city of Arkanar But people still talked about the hut and it was now called nothing but the Drunken Lair This fine excerpt excellently conveys the picturesue atmosphere of the novel And of course this exotic place is a secret base of the earthlings The essence of man Budach said chewing slowly lies in his astonishing ability to get used to anything There s nothing in nature that man could not learn to live with Neither horse nor dog nor mouse has this property Probably God as he was creating man guessed the torments he was condemning him to and gave him an enormous reserve of strength and patience It is difficult to say whether this is good or bad If man didn t have such patience and endurance all good people would have long since perished and only the wicked and soulless would be left in this world On the other hand the habit of enduring and adapting turns people into dumb beasts who differ from the animals in nothing except anatomy and who only exceed them in helplessness And each new day gives rise to a new horror of evil and violence Can historical processes be changed from the outside Do the outsiders have the moral rights to change themThese aren t rhetorical uestions these uestions are actual here and now in our own home world Hell for the Company Brimstone #1 resembles so much our own medieval period of dark ages In the depths of the forest a mile away from the A Year Down Yonder road beneath an

summary Трудно быть богом Arkady Strugatsky × 3 read review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB × Arkady Strugatsky ვიდან ამდენი წლის შემდეგ იოლად დაინახავთ საბჭოთა რეჟიმის უწმინდურობასა და სიდამპლეს რასაც ალეგორიულად საოცარი ოსტატობით აღწერენ ავტორებ?. I was fascinated by the sound of this when I came across it in the library because I really liked Roadside Picnic and because the foreword mentions parallels with Star Trek and Iain M Banks Culture novels However I found this pretty much unreadable There s a sort of opaueness I associate with reading Russian novels in translations but in spades Supposedly this translation is much readable than the old one which was done via German but if that s the case I hate to think what the old one was likeIt s really disappointing honestly because the foreword makes it sound interesting it s blurbed by Ursula Le Guin and the parallels mentioned are there But I couldn t even hold onto the meaning of the action why did this character say that what was the significance of thatI might try again at some other time maybe with the other translation or with some future translation The setting itself being fairly traditional fantasy esue doesn t bother me and I did as I said enjoy Roadside Picnic HmOriginally posted here
