Arkady Strugatsky (1925-1991) and Boris Strugatsky (1931-2012) began to collaborate in the early 1950s after Arkady had studied English and Japanese and worked as a technical translator and editor and Boris was a computer mathematician at Pulkova astronomical observatory. Their work includes HARD TO BE A GOD, DEFINITELY MAYBE, THE SNAIL ON THE SLOPE and MONDAY BEGINS ON SATURDAY. Andrei Tarkovsky's much-admired film, STALKER, was based on their most famous work, ROADSIDE PICNIC.
