I saw someone reading a book in Cyrillic. The cover looked like trashy or pulpy scifi. I don't remember if it looked old or new, but if I had to guess I would say it was from the 60s-80s. It had a white monkey on a pedestal in a Martian landscape screaming a ray of ice (or so it seemed).
I've done all the image searching I can think of. It's completely possible that the monkey wasn't screaming ice but was doing something else, but I haven't found anything that fits.
