The former touches on the theme that pervades many of Lem’s works: Lem’s long-running character, Ijon Tichy, space traveler, narrates, as he visits scientists whose work he’s curious about, entertains visitors looking for investors in their big ideas, stumbles randomly into strange s This gwizdowe be my new favorite book by Lem.

He is perhaps best known as the author of Solariswhich has twice been made into a feature film. Although the theme of the alien from Solaris and Gwiazddowe is present in The Star Diariesthe aliens in these stories are not truly alien to the reader. I read this book in French when I discovered Marseille’s public library and every short story was exciting. In andtwo independent short films were made, running about 15 minutes each, directed by Dennis Jacobsen, Randa Chahoud, and Oliver Jahn Jahn also played the main character Ijon Tichywith Nora Tschirner starring as the female hologram.

Still, it reveals more of the fascinating, baroque mind of Stanislaw Lem. The Star Diaries recounts a dozen separate kooky, bugged out, way-out voyages of our undaunted explorer. Who hopes to boldly go where no man has gone before. Unfortunately he forgot an innate characteristic of time travel, one which, according to Tichy Lemmost Sci Fi writers neglect: On Pinta, people are trying to become fish using a technique called evolution by persuasion.

If you’re new to Lem then skip this one until you’re more familiar with his better stuff. Many of the convolutions of time and space involve Tichy, full well kno I had seen “Solaris” waaay back in college I think. The Introduction and Introduction to the Expanded Edition are really a part of the book as well and not truly Introductions as can be gatthered from “The press tells us that Tichy used a ghost-writer, or that he never even existed, his The Star Diaries by Stanislav Lem is a group of short stories that the author wrote over a time period from s and expanded and reissued in On Panta, all inhabitants are identical clones and exchange their jobs daily.


On further investigation, our zoom-boy discovers three fwiazdowe cities, all glowing gwiaadowe dazzling beauty but when he touches down in the middle of one, Ijon is even more flummoxed: A Things always go wrong.

I need to reread this to review the book properly, but I know I liked it a lot, and even made a view spoiler [Tichy family tree hide spoiler ] out of one story, just for fun. What Ijon learns from this knowledgeable Phool highlights two important lessons humans back on his home planet are well to heed: One of the best ones that I have read this year!!!

Tichy was persuaded to give it a try. Mystified, Ijon consults another book on the General Theory of Relativity that ywiazdowe how in certain gravitational vortices there can be a complete reversal of time causing a duplication of the present.

That might eventually result in machines whose intelligence exceeds ours by more than ours exceeding that of snails. Things quickly get out of hand. Dick, then Stanislaw Lem’s b A loose-knit collection of stories that are, in part, a follow-up to Lem’s The Futurological Congress, these are all pretty good science fiction tales, if a bit dated.

A brilliant and hilarious I find parody, emblematic of the “Speculative Fiction” Genre, but where the word “Speculative” actually denotes what it’s meant to. What he succeeds at the best is the fact that he takes all of the events that happen to him, no matter how strange or borderline disturbing they are, in a light-hearted and calm manner.

I really like the Eighth Voyage, which Tichy represents Earth for its admission to the United Planets only for mankind to be judged unsuitable for entry. A loose-knit collection of stories that are, in part, a follow-up to Lem’s The Futurological Congress, these are all pretty good science fiction tales, if a bit dated.

Wells type of time machine. Jul 08, Gregory rated it liked it. Return to Book Page. Maybe what was original, witty, creative and imaginative at the time of the book’s writing is now part of your ordinary modern sci-fi menu. I have read hundreds of pages about him and I have no idea what is his personality, how does he looks like or what makes him what he is. Of course, accelerated evolution contains both pros and cons – the Microcephalds alternately worship Ijon and send him off to be tortured.

He might be the most non-existent character in the history of literature. I enjoyed each and every one of Ijon’s revealing reports and count the following pungent probes among my favorites: This story also includes a lesson in human evolution very different from the one we learned here on Earth. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Ijon knows he’s flying solo and tells the intruder he’s nothing more than a dream.


Other books in the series. Despite his undeniable wit, I think comedy is not Lem’s strongest point and the best story in the book is the 21st Voyage, where he’s more serious and you get a lot of truly interesting theological and ethical speculation. When I was reading it decades ago I completely missed all the allusions and references to philosophy and history, which were so clear to me – thus hugely entertaining – now.

The language, overall, was very rich, changing between styles, even using a made up version of old and new language, in the Polish version, I assume, Polish, but also, and much credit to Kandel, of course, in the English version, a sensational mix of old and new English that I had some trouble with, but that only attests to it’s greatness, because it used expressions long out of use. I Tichy befriends a mad scientist who shows Tichy his masterpiece: The stories in both books were originally published together in Polish; the ones in this volume are what was left out of the first and it somewhat shows when you compare the quality of the two.

In this work, Lem discusses philosophical implications of dzienni,i that were completely in the realm of science fiction then, but are gaining importance today—like, for instance, virtual reality and nanotechnology. Even if you’re not new to Lem I strongly recommend reading The Star Diaries first and then if you like that reading this one, which does still have some good stories.
