In den sechziger Jahren sehr erfolgreich, stand der Roman anschließend lange Zeit im Schatten neuerer Werke der Strugatzkis; er hat aber eine Renaissance erlebt, nachdem 1993 eine anhand der Manuskripte rekonstruierte, unzensierte und unbearbeitete Fassung erschien (von der in Russland inzwischen über eine Viertelmillion Exemplare verkauft wurden).
Die vorliegende deutsche Ausgabe ist mit dieser Fassung abgeglichen; sie wird komplettiert durch ein Kapitel aus einer frühen Arbeitsfassung des Romans, Kommentare Boris Strugatzkis sowie ein Nachwort und Anmerkungen von Erik Simon.
Weltweit über eine Million verkaufte Exemplare!
