Lem and other SF
« dnia: Styczeń 09, 2005, 08:55:23 pm »
Gents, I just read Poul Andersons "Power of Mind".
Have you ever read it?!
I mean, after I put it in a line with one of Lem's books,
I saw the different.
Lem's always act in the Rules of the World, the Physic
and all other.
The other ones make their own rules, let them fly
with "over-light-speed" for example.
I'm sorry, but after reading Lem, other SF looks like
Children-Tales for me.
How about you, can you take other SF serious, after
reading Lem?

It may suprise You, but yes, there are some decent writers also. Take Bradbury, for instance.

 :) Today I read some funny line, fitting in this theme:
If you want to put a information somewhere, where
even the devil won't find it, publish they in a SF Magazin.
It was out of the Technology Trap.

And in an Interview with the "Spiegel" 1996 he said to
Star Trek:
This storys will always be Tales.
These authors configure the rules, so they fit with
their story.

Thanks for the authors tip.
I will try to get something from him.

Other sf writers? I don`t know why Clifford Simac With his / CEMETARY WORLD/ and /THEY LOOKED LIKE MEN/ came to my mind. The novels are good, both have unexpected ends, absurd ones.
What about Philip Dic ? He has good short stories , some of them are /The Second Model/,/The Gold Man/,but his novels are terrible/ A Zap Gun/ for example.

I mean, especially, the big difference between Lem and other authors. Other ones don't care about physically laws or reallistic future science, lem still do.

thats what I mean. He's not a PulpFiction- writer.
He's an prophet of the future.

Pulp Fiction is a great movie.  Thought I should just throw that in.  Sorry.
Cheers, SOcrates

He thought that Lem is a Science-fiction, not pulp-fiction writer, I guess

Stanislav Lem is undoubtfully a genius.You can it better realize in comparison with someone else.There are also talented writers like A.Clarke,I.Asimov,R.D.Bradbury,I`d like to mention Ukrainian Strugatsky brothers.

Right. Pulp means trash, and bad stories on bad paper for a few cents.

The film is independent, but not mented in all way.

What is in the case of Marcellus Wallace? :)

That question's been hunting me for ages.  One day I'll have to corner Tarantino and force him to spill the beans.

Nothing. Tarantino doesn´t have any definite idea, he just wanted to make an interesting plot. It was the easiest way to do it.

Actually I don`t like Q.Tarantino,for stupidness and disgusting immorality of his movies.Tarantino makes trash for Americans and third world countries,he spelt the beans already,PULP-FICTION-is all he can make.

It `s a nuisance to talk about Tarantino/Buratino-Russian nosed Pinoccio/ at Sci-fiction forum.Recently I have discovered for myself the works of Chechish SF writer Karel Chapek.His short stories like "Ofir","Halo","A Man who Could Fly" are amazing.He is also known as the inventor of the word "robot". He named robots a fantastic creatures of his play "R.U.R."which was published in 1920.His Play "The Means of Macropulos" was screened by soviet cinematographists.

Yes, Chapek was already discussed somewhere around here; we've talked about animated psyhodrama-comedy Futurama (kickass), where in one episode (,,Fear of a bot planet'') the bot planet (a planet, where robots are only inhabitants) was named ,,Chapek-9" (or something).

I have personally never read any book writen by Chapek. I hope this will change one day.

1) This is not a sci fi forum, this is Lem's forum.  
2) Conversations have a way of geting out of topic at times.  That is normal.  
3) I absolutely hate being told not to discuss something I want to discuss.  Please don;t tell me to do that again.
4) If you don;t want to talk about Tarantino, you don;t have to.  Skip this topic.

Cheers, Socrates
