Скромный гений?Skromnyy geniy
Title Record # 954814
Author:
Date: 1963-10-06
Type: SHORTFICTION
Length: short story
Language: Russian
Note: Published in the Nedelya weekly No 41, 6 Oct 1963; then Shefner's 1965 coll Счастливый неудачник (Schastlivy neudachnik). Later reprints conclude with composition date "1963", used in standard bibliographies too. FantLab publication 71858 claims the 1st ed is just an excerpt; however other sources do not, in particular the thorough sssf-ru.narod2.ru/bibliografiya_fantastiki_a_evdokimova/proizvedeniya_russkih_i_sovetskih_avtorov/sh/ which notes excerpts explicitly elsewhere and gives page nums as 16, 17, 22. As Nedelya was Sunday version of large-format newspaper Izvestiya and the story is quite short (35k chars), likely it was complete or cut not much more than in US genre mags of the time.
