A lightweight set of fairy tales set in a very vaguely SF universe. Amusing, but nothing that sticks with me over time. I'd read it before - years ago - and remembered none of it. Still, it's fun while you read it, and it is probably Lem's most famous work

The Polish writer, Lem Stanisslaw died a couple of months ago. Probaly the best science fiction in any language. 2 robots try to ou-invent one another. Traveling to the far corners of the cosmos taking on free lance problem solving jobs. Really enjoyable

Fables for the cybernetic age by Poland's premier SF author/polymath.

Much funnier and more uniquely descriptive of humanity than I'd anticipated. Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy owes much to this classic.
