A thrilling science fiction novel about rebellious young outlaws who illegally scavenge the mysterious artifacts left behind by alien visitors in "The Zone." Red Schuhart is one of the most fearless "stalkers" in this black market world, but a dangerous mission gone wrong leaves him with no choice but to return to the Zone again and again until he finds a solution. Widely considered a classic of the genre, with a new authoritative translation and insight from Ursula K. Le Guin and Boris Strugatsky.

If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. Stalkers, alien artifacts and radioactive zones. Too much fun. – source
