?Matryoshka Infinities? is the first in a series of literary works written by M.J.Rumyantsev.
Science fiction of a different kind, written for more philosophically minded readers. A collection of 19 short stories.
Prospective readers are cautioned that this book, despite of its genre, does not contain any descriptions of or references to:
- loud explosions of stars or space ships, to be heard in an otherwise empty space surrounding them,
- evil aliens and inter-stellar wars fought to either conquer new domains or bring about long awaited freedom to the already conquered solar systems.
Although the book is written in English to convey the thoughts of all characters depicted in it, most of them neither speak it as their mother tongue nor do they have the faintest idea what ?English? is. It also does not contain those awkward first contact scenes in which English is used as lingua franca throughout the known Universe, from the very first sentence uttered.
To compensate for the appalling lack of the above-mentioned features though, this book will present its readers with quite a few interesting scientific and moral concepts, some of which might be a bit ahead of their time, with some others going well into the depths of history. For those of a more curious nature, the book does not end with its last chapter and its end is to be found elsewhere.
