A Finnish RPG publisher Burger Games is going to release their hit product Stalker in English:

29-May-2011: Stalker, International
This June I am going to have one more print run of Stalker RPG. And this time in English.
...
This early print-run of 100 copies will be the collector's edition, the first print and the sample. If it gets positive reception I'll probably put it up for sale as a PDF.

Here's the info page...in Finnish: http://www.burgergames.com/stalker/

I haven't played or read the game myself but from what I've read from the interwebz it seems good. It's based in the Strugatsky book and it's about Stalkers doing trips to the Zone (surprise!).

Ooo that might be an interesting P&P RPG to play, might have a look at that.

What's the system like?

You can convert anything to work with any setting, so the setting isn't something I particularly care about when looking at new games. If the system is shit, it won't be something worth playing either way, sadly. :(

That sounds very very interesting, and I was just shopping around for a gift to a friend's birthday.

Any idea where it'll be commercially available?

This says "July": http://nitessine.wordpress.com/2011/05/29/stalker-rpg-to-be-released-in-english/
It's supposed to be a small print run so I guess the best way to find out details is to contact the publisher at ville@burgergames.com.
