A Celebration of the Work of Stanisław LemBook - 2011
A celebration of Polish science fiction writer Stanisław Lem, this anthology brings together writers, critics, and scientists who continue to grapple with Lem's concerns. Featuring short stories, essays, and especially commissioned translations, this account speculates on Lem's life and vision while delivering brand-new fiction. From computer games ( The Sims was inspired by one of his short stories) to films (the red and blue pills of The Matrix owe much to his Futurological Congress ), the presence of this masterful writer can be traced far and wide. Contributors include Brian Aldiss, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Mike Nelson, Jacek Dukaj, and more.
