Stanislaw Lem – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Stanisław Lem (September 12, 1921 – March 27, 2006) was a Polish science fiction, philosophical, and satirical writer. His books have been translated into 41 languages and sold over 27 million copies. At one point he was the most widely read science fiction author in the world. Lem’s writing is full of intelligent humor, puns, and neologisms, and Michael Kandel’s translations into English have been praised by many for capturing Lem’s style.
Stanislaw Lem passed on today. The world is at a great loss.
