* ReferenceOverdosed: Pretty much everything in the novel can be read as a comment on or a homage to something else... From a snarky sendup of Aristotle's Politics, of all things, to stealth-quotes from classic Russian novels to a pastiche of contemporaneous trashy SF&F now mostly forgotten and lyrics of popular songs and propaganda doggerel.

* ClingyMacGuffin: A "non-changeable dime" that returns to its owner every time it's spent. Until it's confiscated by policemen as an instrument of petty fraud.

Or not so petty: one policeman mentions that there were crooks who collected sums to buy a car (a big deal in the USSR) by repeatedly spending the magical coin and collecting spare change. ** This item is based on UsefulNotes/RussianMythologyAndTales, except in the fairy tales it was usually a silver ruble, not a small copper piece.

'''''Monday Begins on Saturday''''' (Russian: "Понедельник начинается в субботу") is a 1964 novel, one of the most beloved works by the Creator/StrugatskyBrothers. [[{{Magitek}} A mix of fantasy and science-fiction]], it tells the stories of [[ExtranormalInstitute a Soviet research institute dedicated to studying magic and the supernatural]], the dedicated scientists who work there, and the wide variety of [[FantasyKitchenSink monsters, ghosts, and other critters]] that they study and work with. Adapted into a two-part Christmas special back in the early 80s. It's a fun movie in its own right, but it has very little to do with the novel it's supposedly based on (which annoyed the Brothers quite a bit at the time).
