I’ve been dipping my toes back into sci fi recently (of the classic, translated kind) with another lovely reissue from Penguin in their Modern Classics range of a book by Stanislaw Lem. He’s an author I’ve read a lot of in recent years, and I’ve written about his work both here and on Shiny New Books.

His “Tales of Pirx the Pilot” is an interesting work which almost acts as a bridge between his collections of shorter, funnier works and more serious books like “Solaris”. It’s a thought-provoking look at questing human beings voyaging out through the stars, and I loved it! You can read my full review here!
