Radiant Terminus takes place in a Tarkovskian landscape after the fall of the Second Soviet Union. Most of humanity has been destroyed thanks to a number of nuclear meltdowns, but a few communes remain, including one run by Solovyei, a psychotic father with the ability to invade people's dreams - including those of his daughters - and torment them for thousands of years. When a group of damaged individuals seek safety from this nuclear winter in Solovyei's commune, a plot develops to overthrow him, end his reign of mental abuse, and restore humanity.

Ebook available and will be mentioned on all press release materials, Open Letter website, etc. Two of Volodine's translators are putting together a special infographic (of sorts) for Lit Hub about the links between all of Volodine's novels. Based on the buzz surrounding Bardo or Not Bardo?along with the very comprehensive pieces about Volodine at The New Inquiry and Paris Review?we will make a strong push to get the world of Volodine featured at io9. (Helps that this novel of his contains so many sci-fi elements.) Possibility that China Mi�ville will write an introduction for this book. Brian Evenson is also a fan (in fact, there's a rumor that Evenson has written some of Volodine's books?something we can exploit in building up the myth of Volodine), and we're trying to get a blurb from Jeff VanderMeer.

Reviews

"A landmark of modern dystopianism."--Kirkus Reviews"With the calm strangeness of dreams, and humor deepened by a hint of melancholy, these wonderful stories fool around on the frontiers of the imagination.--Shelley Jackson"Life or death? Dream or reality? Antoine Volodine destroys these binaries with the force of a nuclear meltdown."--Rachel S. Cordasco, World Literature Today"Jeffrey Zuckerman's translation excels in setting a mood of discomfort partly rooted in the text's radical semantic instability, while simultaneously lending the prose haunting cadences."--Geoff Shullenberger, Los Angeles Review of Books"Radiant Terminus is a compelling and consistently engaging read from cover to cover and highly recommended for both community and academic library Literary Fiction collections, as well as the personal reading lists of science fiction enthusiasts."--Pault T. Vogel, The Midwest Book Review "A landmark of modern dystopianism." --Kirkus Reviews "A landmark of modern dystopianism." --Kirkus Reviews "A landmark of modern dystopianism." Kirkus Reviews"
