I've had this piece sitting in my watch list(I procrastinate) since you put it out and it's easily become my favorite work of yours. It manages to capture a curious breaking out of emotion that you might think an android would have.

"Then it was not hair, but great, curved horns from some wide, uncertain brow, whose crook-legged owner struggled to shuffle hoofs along the blazing way."

This was the first thing that my mind recalled for such a character.
Though, after that I read the story of your character and saw that it's more Simak's story than Zelazny's.

Though, not. It's your own story, your own character and your own style. And I like it.
Without something scaring, we cannot feel the fullness of our life.
And I think that there is something scaring in some of your works. Positive-scaring. The scare that motivates to think of something internal to human mind, which is only present with us.

Some of us try to shield out the things they feel "ugly" and "uncomfortable". But really, we need to think of them. We need to analyze ourselves through them. And after we've reached them and felt them, we become a pure and clearer versions of ourselves. Only those who felt the darkside know what the lightside really is and why they both have their right to exist: because the human is consistent, he is not of the wrong or of the right, he is of the both, he is of he's own.

This is why I love Deviantart - I can always learn something new and interesting such these two sci-fi authors :). I've been really into science-fiction recently, so I think I will read some books of these two guys :aww:! Do you know more good authors of sci-fi who you can recommend?
Oh yes, some of my work is scary since I know people learn the best when you scary them. And your wonderful comment exactly explains what is in my mind when I paint something. So thank you, I adore such comments :hug:!

Chronicles of Amber by Zelazny is sci-fi only in the sense that Merlin have created unusual computer to build the search index of Shadows. :)
In all other senses, this is psychology-sociology-philosophy-fantasy. And Merlin's cycle (the second part of Chronicles) is the pure fantasy will much less first-great-three-items, and sometimes it seems that it was written by someone another. Or the first part was written by someone another.
Though, it is one of my favorite books at all, alongside with The City by Simak.

As for Simak, I suggest not to read his Empire as the first book, it is alike scientific fairytale: how two good scientists won over the bad guys from the monopoly. What I mostly like of him, for the philosophy behind that: All Flesh is Grass, Ring Around the Sun. And of humor is Goblin's Reservation.

Of alike authors, I also may suggest Henty Kuttner. Somehow his novels have something common with the first two I named.

As for the authors of my motherland, I suggest Alexander Belyaev and Ivan Efremov, if you haven't read them yet.

Thank you very much for these all titles :love:! I'm going to borrow them from a library and read them :). And from my side I recommend you to read Stanisław Lem's books - the atmosphere of his books is just incredible :love:!

And of course, as you are the person of Art, this may lead to new shapes, heroes and creatures in your paintings. And we'll be happy to enjoy them. ;)

Wow, thank you. I found that of course I've heard of him so much, but never read him. Shame on me. Will fix this immediately after I finish "Three Men in a Boat" and "Three Men on the Bummel". :)

Hehe, you're welcome :aww:! I recommend you 'Solaris' and 'The Invincible' - they're just amazing :aww:!

:iconzhuravlik26:
zhuravlik26 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013
Yes, there are also several film versions of Solaris, though, I didn't watch any of them, too. :)

Seems that on my postgraduate I'll finally read those wonderful pieces of literature that I somehow missed at school and later. But better than never. :)

Thank you very much for your recommendations! I'll read them, surely!

p.s.: Maybe we need to list all the items we've read and then calculate the diff. And we'll see how many other great books could have been missed and forgotten if another one of us won't remind the first one of us of their existence.
