Soviet Weird?

As there appears to be a positive glut of Soviet Science Fiction out there, I was wondering if there were any great examples of Soviet Weird or Soviet Horror fiction?

I'm aware that there is an anthology called 'Red Spectres', featuring Soviet Gothic Fiction, but other than that, my knowledge of Russian/Soviet fiction extends mostly towards the Decadent and the more famous examples of Russian literature.

Re: Soviet Weird?

Mark Samuels gives high praise to Leonid Andreyev's work, including "The Red Laugh: Fragments of a Discovered Manuscript." Based on his recommendation, I purchased this one but have not yet read it.




Then there is always the classic, "The Master and Margarita," by Mikhail Bulgakov.




I have also enjoyed Victor Pelevin's work, including "The Life of Insects."




The late Avalon Brantley praised the work of Aleksei Remizov in Tartarus' Wormwood 25.

After reading her review, I found a copy of "Russian Tales of Demonic Possession: Translations of Savva Grudtsyn and Solomonia," which contains two of Remizov's stories, both excellent.
