The article presents the attempt to analyze the phenomenon of Edward Radziński`s
oeuvre. Radziński’s prose presents the “historical fiction” or “alternative‑historical
stream together with Victor Suvorov`s works. These literary works have pretensions to being
scientific, however they are not as very often their authors are non‑professional
historians”. The product from the sign of “historical fiction” is headed towards mass readers.
It gives the promise of fascinating story that is why it is full of tricks and themes peculiar to
popular literature. More than to reader’s intellect these books appeal to the emotions, what is
a compromise between elitist and mass literature.
