Horsemen from Nowhere

(1969)
A novel by

 
"Horsemen from Nowhere" is a science-fiction story about the arrival on earth of mysterious rose-colored clouds from deep space. Members of the Soviet Antarctic expedition are the first to meet them in a series of inexplicable events. The "clouds" are seen to be removing the Antarctic ice-cap and carrying it off into space. They are capable of reproducing any kind of atomic structure, and this goes for human beings as well. The heroes of the story meet their "counterparts," come upon a duplicated airliner, journey through a modeled city, and fight Gestapo policemen that have been reconstructed from the past by these same mysterious "clouds."

Scientists are unable to explain why terrestrial life is being modeled. All attempts to contact the space beings fail. In the end, however, Soviet scientists penetrate the enigma of the rose clouds and establish contact with a highly developed extragalactic civilization.

The Abramovs are a father and son writing team. No generational animosity here, as you see! Quite the contrary. One is seventy odd years old, the other only thirty, one is a professional writer, with numerous novels, stories and essays to his credit, the other is an engineer of the breed inspired by Sputnik, and for whom all of Soviet SF that came before serves as but the launching pad for blasting off into the incredible unknown. And, indeed, everything that comes from under their pen - pens? - is steeped in the latest and most unbelievable of hypotheses, in the wildest of fantasies and conjectures
