Hello fellow Stalkers!
I've just read "S.T.A.L.K.E.R - Southern Comfort" - a novel set in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R world by Balazs Pataki. It's about a Ukranian special forces officer - Mikhailo Tarasov - who, having served in the Zone, is sent by Colonel Kuznetsov into a new Zone which has opened up in Afghanistan to rescue a science team led by Sakharov. A good read - available from Smashwords as a pdf, mobi or Epub.

I have both S.T.A.L.K.E.R - Southern Comfort & the sequel S.T.A.L.K.E.R - Northern Passage in physical form on my bookshelf. Pataki originally published under the name of John Mason. Been several years since I read them.

Vaguely recall there were some copyright issues, where GSC initially gave the author permission, then removed it, so he re-released the books removing the stalker references.

Every so often I do a search to see if any of the officially licenced novels have been been translated (either fan or officially). Not yet found any, so these (and a couple of graphic novels) are the only written forms in english we have that I know of.

Thank you very much, PhilH231 and fantomas, for this fan-fiction info on our favourite game. After a little research I found links to his sequel, plus another to GSC's more recent 'Captives of the Zone'

Thank you for letting us know about these books. Somehow I have missed out on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. books until now, despite being an avid fan of the games. This morning I downloaded S.T.A.L.K.E.R - Southern Comfort (free download from the links above) and I am enjoying reading fiction based in a world that I know so well study Very Happy .

Hi and thanks for the links.
I managed to snag both copies of STALKER Northern passage and Southern Comfort on ebay. Both are a pretty good read even though the zone has moved to Afghanistan.

Hoping they release more books based on our favourite game.

Stay safe in the zone fellow Stalkers

I've not read them so cannot comment on them
