It’s not everyone who packs their bags and heads to Tatarstan, Kalmykia, Mari El and Udmurtia – four of the most remote and least frequented republics of Russia. But that is exactly what anti-tourist and travel writer Daniel Kalder did for his debut Lost Cosmonaut. In Strange Telescopes he meets a Siberian taxi driver claiming to be the Messiah whilst making a tour of Soviet oddballs. Naturally, he is speaking on exploding travel-writing cliches.
