Yevgeny Zamyatin

Today is the anniversary of the death in 1937 of Russian science fiction writer Yevgeny Zamyatin. His dystopian novel We was influential on authors George Orwell, Ayn Rand and Kurt Vonnegut.

It can be read in English online here. I still have the paperback copy I read when I was in high school in the 70's. I remember how it impressed me.
