The book describes the consequences of an atomic war. Its only survivors strive for existence in the mazes of the Moscow subway (Metro) some two decades after the nuclear Holocaust. Formally a sci-fi novel, Metro 2033 describes a dystopia, in which Russia’s present-day society is superficially analyzed and described. It also critically examines communism in the former Soviet Union and the rise of fascism in modern Russia. It first appeared online in 2002 and has later become an interactive experiment, drawing in thousands of readers from around Russia. In 2005 it was printed by an established publisher and has become a nationwide bestseller. In 2007, Glukhovsky was awarded the Encouragement Award of the European Science Fiction Society in the prestigious Eurocon contest in Copenhagen for his novel Metro-2033. By 2009, over 400.000 copies of Metro 2033 have been sold in Russia alone. Online readers are five times as numerous. Foreign book rights have been sold to more than 20 countries. A first person shooter video game Metro 2033, developed by 4A Games and published by THQ was released worldwide in March 2010 for PC and Xbox 360 platforms. Currently, Glukhovsky is negotiating with Hollywood-based studios and producers to sell the film rights.[citation needed] Metro 2034 Metro 2034, an indirect sequel to Metro 2033, has sold some 300,000 copies in just 6 months, making it Russia’s biggest local bestseller in 2009. The book has also been published online for free on Metro 2034 Official Web Site, where over a million visitors have read the text. Glukhovsky has turned a book into an art-project, inviting famous Russian electronic performer Dolphin to write an original soundtrack for the novel, while artist Anton Gretchko worked on the oil-painted images gallery. It's Getting Darker The novel "It’s getting darker" was published in 2007. It is a dark tale of the translator Dmitry who gets the order for a dozen pages cut out of what seems to be a several centuries old Spanish book. He discovers that the book is a journal of an expedition of Conquistadors dating back to the 16th century. Dmitry is reading this story chapter by chapter, collecting the full translation at home. Finally the story starts penetrating his reality and threatening his life. "It's Getting Darker" was also an on-line experiment as Dmitry Glukhovsky was publishing it chapter by chapter in his blog.
