Part of today’s end-of-season tifo, before the Thorns beat seattle 1-0 to clinch a playoff spot. Traditionally the TA/RCR do player-specific tifo for the last game of every season (remember the Simpsons tifo? like that), and this was one of the best I’ve ever seen. After the game the fans give the players each their own banner (here’s Kat Tarr with herself as Rosie the Riveter).
Excellent work by all the Riveters who made this happen - and what a treat they beat s—tle and made the playoffs too! :)
Arkady and Boris Strugatsky are probably the most famous Soviet-era science-fiction writers, but only recently have any of their numerous books come back into print in the US: Chicago Review Press published a new translation of Roadside Picnic (the basis for Tarkovsky’s Stalker) in 2012 and Melville House just published Definitely Maybe (translated by Antonina Bouis). CRP will also publish Hard to Be a God in June.
These scans come from the 50 Watts hoard except for the top 1979 Penguin (art by Adrian Chesterman) courtesy of David/qualityapeman. Richard M. Powers illustrated the bottom Roadside Picnic and the four other covers in that style.
I guess we all can relate

On Thursday, Mr. Zanoli, 91, whose father died in a Nazi camp, went to the Israeli Embassy in The Hague and returned a medal he received honoring him as one of the Righteous Among the Nations — non-Jews honored by Israel for saving Jews during the Holocaust. In an anguished letter to the Israeli ambassador to the Netherlands, he described the terrible price his family had paid for opposing Nazi tyranny.
“My sister lost her husband, who was executed in the dunes of The Hague for his involvement in the resistance,” he wrote. “My brother lost his Jewish fiancée who was deported, never to return.”
Mr. Zanoli continued, “Against this background, it is particularly shocking and tragic that today, four generations on, our family is faced with the murder of our kin in Gaza. Murder carried out by the State of Israel.”
