The most popular genres in Russian popular literature were bandits/crime, fairy tales, adventure, and war, while science fiction in Russian literature before the 20th century was serious fiction, written to be Art. Even works with elements which might have been pulp in other writers' hands, like Rakhmetov, the proto-Doc Savage of Nikolai Chernyshevsky's Chto Delat? (1862-1863), were handled in a serious and humorless manner.
