Works yet to be published in English
« dnia: Czerwiec 21, 2010, 08:01:56 pm »
I am somewhat new to the world of Lem's writings and quickly noticed how many of his works have never been published in English. Searches on the forum have not provided a clear answer so can anyone update me on this? Interest for his later works and essays may not approach that of his known classics, but surely there's a market, least of all for the completists who simply must own everything Lem wrote. Notable among these are the short stories collections "The Riddle (Zagadka, 1996), "The Fantastical Lem" (Fantastyczny Lem, 2001), "Sezam" (1955) and the novel "The Magellanic Cloud" (Obłok Magellana, 1955).

I can only assume the author's heirs are constrained by previous rights arrangements with publishers, but why the publishers would not have licensed more translations after so many years is a question.

Any responses at all will be appreciated. Surely there's some info amongst the 80+ readers to date...
