The Universe of Metro 2033 (Russian: Вселенная Метро 2033) is a long-running series of post-apocalyptic short stories, novellas, and novels, spanning a variety of genres. The works are written by many different authors. However, all publications from the series are supported by Dmitry Glukhovsky and advertised on the official Metro 2033 website.

Overview[]

Although the project started off in Russia in late 2009, it has grown immensely since then and has consequently been turned into an international programme. To date, over 90 books have been published under this label. The series features not only the creations of Russian writers, but also the creative works of Belarusian, Polish, Ukrainian, British, Italian, and Cuban authors.

It enjoys great popularity in Russia (where a new title is released each month) and other Eastern European countries, such as Poland (where the project is growing rapidly) and Hungary (where it has also gathered a cult following). Outside of the region, Germany has received some translations; even fewer stories from the series have also been published in Italy, Spain, Sweden, France, and South Korea. None of the works has yet been translated into English.

One way of judging which countries are the most interested in the series is by looking at the statistics of the official Russian website for the Universe. Looking at its live stats, the top 5 countries with the most visits (from most frequent to least) are the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Poland.
