Excellent primer on the world's most widely read SF author
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 24 years ago
"Carnival" is an entertaining and fascinating journey into the imagination of one of Science Fiction's true literary geniuses, edited and annoted by someone who has been there. Editor Michael Kandel, who has translated many of Lem's works, offers the reader a broad sample of Lem's stories, ranging from the serious (Return from the Stars) to the hilarious (Cyberiad). Interspersed with these stories are the editor's notes on Lem's life, style, and philosophy. For those who are already fans of Stanislaw Lem, the notes provide insight into the stories, characters, and author. For those who are not yet fans, this collection provides a great introduction to an author who will soon become a personal favorite. If you can find this book, buy it at any price
