Stanislaw Lem

Stanislaw Lem has died. I'm not much of a science fiction fan, but I got a great kick out of "The Cyberiad" when I read it in high school, and recently I had the pleasure of introducing it to my son, who also enjoyed it. There's a lot of serious philosophy and a clever lesson in logical conundrums amid the whimsy.
