The Russian Sleep Experiment is a new horror/psychological novella by Holly Ice, inspired by the Cold War. The Soviet Union is conducting unethical, secret experiments in the depths of Siberia. This particular experiment is conducted on political prisoners ahead of the scientific trial being approved for human experimentation. The Soviet Union wants the edge in any coming conflict and to do this, they test Gas 76-IA on four volunteers. These political prisoners are offered their freedom in exchange for thirty days without sleep, powered by this mysterious gas, but the side effects are more than they had bargained for.
The Russian Sleep Experiment is an extension to novella length of the original Creepypasta short story, with added content.
This extension of the tale has three parts:
Part 2: Told from the POV of one of the experimentees and the lead scientist. This part fleshes out the major action of the original tale in real time. We see what happens from inside the mind of the prisoners and from inside the cage of the experiment, as well as from the logbooks of the very ambitious lead scientist.
Part 3: Told from the POV of one of the scientists involved in the experiment, after it has concluded. This final section shows the consequences of the experiment and is based in rural Siberia.
The Russian Sleep Experiment features artwork by award-winning graphic artist Daniel Tyka.
