  1. And I can recommend the monthly magazine “If”.

    He specializes in science fiction of all genres and futurology.

    This is one of the oldest magazines in our country. They publish stories and novellas of domestic and foreign science fiction writers of various genres, and these works are of a high class, plus many articles on current topics.

  2. Tatiana Kryukova is good (“A Trap for a Hero”), but I've been reading it for a very long time, so try it at your own risk and taste.�

    But I recommend Mikhail Akhmanov in no uncertain terms. He is a wonderful writer, and I still fondly remember his series “Coming Out of the Dark” – a saga of several centuries and twelve books about how humanity overcomes alien aggressors and strives for the stars. A lot of original ideas, and this is the only work in my memory where Russia is shown as a space power and at the same time other countries do not plunge into shit.

  3. From talented modern Russian authors in the genre of hard-sf (as opposed to fantasy, alt.Perhaps only Alexander Gromov (not to be confused with Dmitry “Half-Old” Gromov) writes history, psychological fiction, etc. So I recommend it. Especially “Tomorrow is Eternity”, “St. Vitus Minuet”, “The Year of Lemming”.

  4. I can recommend Robert Ibatullin's novel “The Rose and the Worm”, which tells about the destruction of our planet by the evil Aquilians, because of which Earthlings had to create a Space fleet and fight for space resources. In the course of the story, we get into the twists and turns of space politics and try together with the main characters to find out why an alien something destroyed the Earth?
    Here's what Anton Pervushin said in the April issue of Mir Fantastiki:
    “This work will certainly attract the attention of those who miss Russian science fiction, which would realistically describe our future – without discounts on the age, education and views of readers. So far, the novel stands apart, but I really want to believe that the revival of Russian SF will begin with it.”

  5. Smart, modern, domestic and even sci-fi-Anna Starobinets “Ikar's iron”. Something reminds Bradbury, something sensational TV series “Black Mirror”. A series of short stories, each of which begins as a completely everyday story, but in the end touches on many philosophical problems, both moral and technical. Highly recommend it!
