Stanislaw Lem is considered by many critics to be the world's greatest living science fiction writer (as of 1991) and has been called a literary movement in himself. In Poland and the Soviet Union paper quotas have caused a black market for his newest books and some of his novels are required reading in schools. In the West his audience has steadily grown after Lem first created major attention with Solaris (1961) and has followed it with provocative and inventive short stories and novels that exhibit so many talents that he almost seems like a consortium of Polish writers.

In this volume, J. Madison Davis, a novelist and critic, ranges over the entire body of Lem's fiction available in English from adventure to humor to philosophy to postmodernist fictions, illuminating the biography, the major themes, and the amazing phenomenon of a writer who in his entire life has traveled only a few hundred miles from his birthplace and yet has explored the universe.
