Happy Birthday, Yevgeny Zamyatin!

Happy birthday to the father of modern dystopian fiction, Yevgeny Zamyatin (1 February, 1884 – 10 March, 1937)!

2013 Reading - 33


“It is said there are flowers that bloom only once in a hundred years. Why should there not be some that bloom once in a thousand, in ten thousand years? Perhaps we never know about them simply because this 'once in a thousand years' has come today.”
― Yevgeny Zamyatin, We (1924)

Happy birthday also to time_shark, and happy early birthday to alitalf, mayree, infostudent, akaihyo, vonjunzt, wiredwizard, moglaikhan, griffith_gwyn, mr_earbrass, mollypunkin, cookiefleck, firiath, nihilistic_kid, alicia_stardust, ankh_hpl, dqg_neal, xerum525, homespunheart, jagash, settiai, rosamundeb, and kalquessa.
