Hundreds of years ago, the forces of light and dark faced each other in very violent battle. In order to avoid a holocaust, their leaders agree to an armistice. For centuries, the two balanced sides are divided into the forces of Day Watch and the forces of Night Watch. Among the humans live "The Others," i.e., persons with supernatural powers including witches, sorcerers and vampires and with the free will to choose which side to join. The legend says that the two forces will be unbalanced by "

Aelita tells of three Russians--an engineer, a soldier, and a detective--who fly to Mars and become involved in a revolutionary uprising among the Martian people. Aelita is equally fascinating, though rarely cited, for its detailed look at life in the U.S.S.R.: housing shortages and residual class conflicts are revealed to play havoc on personal lives. It is this that our satirically neurotic heroes attempt to escape. But, on Mars, technology itself has become the instrument for disenfranchising
