Arkady Strugatsky died on October 12, 1991, ending the collaboration. Boris Strugatsky published two solo novels (neither translated to English) before his death on November 19, 2012. He was quoted to describe solo writing as "sawing a log with a two-man saw, only alone".

The Time of Apprentices (Russian: "Время учеников") is a massive collaborative Strugatsky {{fanfiction}} project that began in 1991 and was sanctioned by Boris Strugatsky. Its participants, aspiring Russian science-fiction authors (the eponymous "apprentices" of the Strugatsky brothers), write short stories and novellas based on the brothers' works, which are then published in anthologies. Four volumes have been published as of 2011. SergeyLukyanenko wrote two short stories in the first and second volumes, respectively.

Unfortunately, [[NoExportForYou English translations are few, lacking in quality and out of print]]. The fact that they are based on Soviet-era censored versions of the works doesn't help. Unfortunately, the chances of getting new English translations is close to nil since Boris Strugatsky refused to take the original Russian texts off his website (something which is apparently a prerequisite for having his work translated in the West). Movie adaptations are not quite as scarce, but suffer from horrible AdaptationDecay. The most famous adaptation is that of ''Piknik na obochine'', translated into English as "''Literature/RoadsidePicnic''", which became a film under the title ''Film/{{Stalker}}''. (The film, in turn, would inspire a [[{{Stalker}} video game]]).
