Plans for the Metro Universe
|“||This project is a series of books, similar to the "Stalker", but much more modern and advanced. Each month a book will be released for the series, in which the action will take place in the "created world of my Metro in 2033". Many authors will participate in this project and tell their stories. Usually there will be other places where people just like in my novels are fighting for survival: to St. Petersburg, Minsk and other cities. In this series, the human race destroyed the apocalyptic world is gradually rediscovered. I was wondering why the makers of Fallout until now do not have any own series of books about the game. I think it would succeed well.||„|
