Stanislaw Lem

Although discovered only recently by the English-speaking world, Stanislaw Lem has long been regarded in Europe as a leading contemporary philosopher of science. He has published 11 million books, a total of over 35 titles in almost as many languages—including not only European tongues but also Chinese, Japanese, and Mongolian, and Hebrew. He remains the best-selling and most prestigious author in Poland as well as the most-translated author in the socialist world. [1984]
