Theodore Sturgeon claimed that Lem was the most widely read science fiction writer in the world.His works explore philosophical themes speculation on technology, the nature of intelligence, the impossibility of mutual communication and understanding, despair about human limitations and humankind s place in the universe They are sometimes presented as fiction, but others are in the form of essays or philosophical books Translations of his works are difficult and multiple translated versions of his works exist.Lem became truly productive after 1956, when the de Stalinization period led to the Polish October , when Poland experienced an increase in freedom of speech Between 1956 and 1968, Lem authored 17 books His works were widely translated abroad although mostly in the Eastern Bloc countries In 1957 he published his first non fiction, philosophical book, Dialogi Dialogues , one of his two most famous philosophical texts along with Summa Technologiae 1964 The Summa is notable for being a unique analysis of prospective social, cybernetic, and biological advances In this work, Lem discusses philosophical implications of technologies that were completely in the realm of science fiction then, but are gaining importance today like, for instance, virtual reality and nanotechnology Over the next few decades, he published many books, both science fiction and philosophical futurological, although from the 1980s onwards he tended to concentrate on philosophical texts and essays.He gained international fame for The Cyberiad, a series of humorous short stories from a mechanical universe ruled by robots, first published in English in 1974 His best known novels include Solaris 1961 , His Master s Voice G os pana, 1968 , and the late Fiasco Fiasko, 1987 , expressing most strongly his major theme of the futility of mankind s attempts to comprehend the truly alien Solaris was made into a film in 1972 by Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky and won a Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1972 in 2002, Steven Soderbergh directed a Hollywood remake starring George Clooney.He was the cousin of poet

    This was Stanislaw Lem s first collection of reviews of non existent books, also known as pseudepigraphy because every stylistic tic clearly deserves its own distinct Greco Latinate title As with most disciples of Borges this student doesn t trump the master, but this was flawed even compared to A Perfect Vacuum, which I highly enjoyed.The main problem was that though these pieces are funny , in that they are usually written to parody v

    I bought this book because I was interested in reading golem xiv Golem was great and the other introductions to books that don t yet exist were only extra reading I enjoyed all the introductions Some were funny and some interesting to imagine This is not the story novel that one expects I am happy though that I found this author and will read from him.

    The first half is stunningly funny but the second is a sober, academic lecture In the first half, wordplay and ideaplay abound and the form of the book a collection of introductions from books to be written in the future is followed strictly In the second half, he immediately abandons all of this I m happy to hear Lem describe how he thinks a different intelligence might relate to us since both Solaris and His Master s Voice end with that disappointingly un

    This is an English translation of two Polish books the first is a collection of prefaces and introductions to imaginary books, supposedly written in the future, and the second, Golem IV was a kind of sequel which actually wrote parts of one of the books The idea of writing prefaces, introductions and reviews of imaginary books of course was not original to Lem, and he was probably influenced by some short stories of Jorge Luis Borges, whom he sometimes resembles,

    My weird ass informal sci fi book club leads me to stuff like this that I m glad I read even as I m not sure I liked it.GOLEM is the highlight, and his last lecture is really the highlight of this book Requires rereading the question of whether or not GOLEM is making sense is not really resolvable within a human centric view of the world, which is kind of phenomenal This book has already influenced how I write.

    Well actually I would give it 4.5 It took me 3 months or to reach cover to cover This books has numerous of those aha moments and numerous places which will allow you to ponder a lot Turn of events right when they are expected, a bit predictable, which will make your eyes widen a bit and you smile and ponder again.

  9. says:

    This is a great work of science fiction Here, Lem lives up to his criticism of sci fi writing mentioned in His Master s Voice It is not surprising Lem later in career turned to non fiction exclusively after proving fiction writing is a form of magic.

  10. says:

    This book of introductions, forewards, and excerpts from 21st Century books reveals the eclectic nature of Lem s genius He begins with the introduction to be written by Stanislaw Ertel to Necrobes by Cezary Strzybisz This isn t so much an introduction as a critique of the 139 reproductions of X ray photographs of living human beings, their soft parts hovering around the skeletal structure like a ghostly presence He can t help associating these images to the work of artists such as Holbein, who ofte
