Stanislaw Lem:
Science Fiction Technology and Ideas
Stanislaw Lem (b. 1921) is a Polish writer known for his satiric, philosophical and science fictional works. His studies of medicine were interrupted by WWII; he worked as a car mechanic and welder, and was a member of the resistance against the Nazis. Highly critical of American pulp sci-fi literature, he considers his own work to be more mainstream literature. His books have sold over 27 million copies and have been translated into 40 languages, making him one of the most widely read sf authors.
