Literature / Noon: 22nd Century

Go To

Noon: 22nd Century (Russian: "Полдень, XXII век") is the first novel in and the namer of the Noon Universe created by the Strugatsky Brothers. Introduced a number of characters that would reappear in many later novels (though rarely all at the same time). By far the most idealistic novel in the series.

The format is best described as a collection of short stories, set in various locales on the utopian Earth in the early 22nd century, featuring several recurring characters. There is no overarching plot per se. This allowed the authors to add additional chapters in later editions. The original 1961 edition included ten stories. The 1962 edition included sixteen stories. The 1967 edition included twenty stories. No stories were added following this point.
