The article is devoted to the urgent problem of the formation of historical memory in different texts of Russian mass literature (B. Akunin, A. Chiz, D. Miropolsky and others).An analysis of the “Artifact-Detective” series gives reason to make sure that the consequence of changes in the authors’ historical consciousness has become the formation of a new strategy for representing history, focused on modeling of historical process. Modern retro detective stories and historical novels represent a variety of artistic versions of historical events. They are aimed at the formation of a new historical consciousness that’s why they are distinguished by clear discursiveness and a sort of provocativeness. National histories in these works are integrated into the “global”, and the main source of ideas about the past are myths, legends and fictional assumptions. Nostalgia for the past, interest in redrawing history is a peculiar way of avoiding the present: the lack of understanding of the present in modern literature is obvious. The processes of creating new historical myths in the mass historical consciousness make works of mass literature especially significant for identifying certain sociocultural trends.

Keywords: modern Russian literature, mass literature, retro detective story, historical novel, historical memory.
