Polish-born Stanislaw Lem, one of SF’s most influential writers, has died today at the age of 84. Lem’s most well-known work is Solaris, but his many works, translated into more than 40 languages, established his fame. An obituary may be found here.

Good storiesI remember reading his books back in the 70’s. I especially liked the satirical "Pirx the Pilot".

):Sorry to hear. I read some of his stuff, and even though I guess it loses in the translation I would highly recommend The Cyberiad.
