Science fiction and fantasy in Estonia is largely a product of the current post-Soviet era. Although somewhat earlier authors, like Eiv Eloon and Tiit Tarlap, do exist.[1] Eesti Ulmeühing is an organization for print science fiction in Estonia that puts out an award called Stalker[2] for the Andrei Tarkovsky film Stalker that was largely shot in Estonia.

In film the works of Raul Tammet have been analyzed.[3]
