Fialko, Nathan

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1881-1960) Russian psychologist and author, resident in the USA from 1903, whose uneven sf novel, Novyĭ Grad (The New City) (1925; trans and rev Fialko as The New City: A Story of the Future 1937), depicts first Soviet then US society, taking a firmly Dystopian view of both. Life in the Epoch of Regularity governing a Near Future USSR is savagely regimented, while class wars torture America. Yevgeny Zamiatin's We (1924) has plausibly been suggested as influencing this work. [JC]
