"Win a book autographed by Stanislaw Lem"
« dnia: Grudzień 09, 2004, 11:45:24 pm »
Have you already noticed this? I just tried it, and it's really hard... the german titles of Lem's book are often totaly diferent from the englisch, so I don't even know what is what...
The covers are supposed to give a hint to what the title is. I believe the turkish titles are totally diferent again and the covers fit to them. But I enjoyed guessing.

Are there more quizzes about Lem one could take?

Tell me something

Well, in case one doesn't know Lem's books by heart, he (or she) can be asked to explain some of Lem's abbreviations: from stories about Tarantoga, for example, or about Ijon Tihij (sorry, i'm not sure with the spelling). They are very funny, and the explanation is always unexpectable.

But

1) it's quite difficult to guess:

2) one can easily find it in books.

And there is surely the problem with translation. I've no idea how this abbreviations look in English or in German (coz i read Lem in Russian).

You're english is perfectly right, I think.

I don't believe I have a chance but I would love most "The Futurological Congress", my favourite book (of Lem and on general). Any other book does as well I think, but Kongress is something special to me... it was the first of Lem's books I read and instantly became my favourite...
I would die for such an authograph. My greatest dream is meeting him once, or writing a letter that he answers... well, dreams.

Hey! Mine too was the first! Since, Ijon Tichy fascinate to me, and devour The Star Diaries and Memoirs of space traveler.

However, I think I would choice Vacum Perfect or Imaginare magnitud, or maybe Memoris found in a bathtub. Or maybe some fine, ilustrated or hard to find edition...

I think that is the dream of many of us. I would like to ask him some questions...

I like to invite you and all to my site (link on bottom of all my posts); is in spanish, but in the archives thera are some material in english (interviews, articles).

You're english is perfectly right, I think.


Thank you ;), but I'm not sure... when I try to elaborate my answers is hard to me find the rigth expressions.

From German to Polnish its a big different.
Very difficult to get the right title for the covers.
I will try to reach the publisher.
