The late Lem (1921-2006) demonstrates his mastery of satirical science fiction in this witty collection of six stories... This classic collection will appeal to readers who like their science fiction light and effervescent.
The release of these new volumes seems to expand the possibilities of what a university publisher can do.
Fourteen years after his death, the universe is still struggling to catch up with the vast creative force that was Stanislaw Lem. And for my money, it won't be surpassing him anytime soon...Enjoying the genius of Lem requires readerly dexterity and a willingness to go wherever the author takes you...These marvelous, absorbing and often hilarious books make our weary universe seem pale and undistinguished by comparison.
