Welcome and enjoy ;):

--- Cytat: gurfle w Marca 21, 2019, 08:15:32 pm ---I am also curious about the very first story in Cyberiad of Trurl's machine that makes everything starting with n.  Presumable the Polish word for nothing also starts with n?

Yes, "nothing" = "nic", "nothingness" = "nicość".

To me, Kandel is one of the Giants. Hats off!

Kandel was simply standing on the shoulders of Lem, as Lem delivered him rough translations to English with running commentary (e.g. Awruk = Tickuff).
If Kandel were honest, he should write "translated by Stanisław Lem with assistance of Michael Kandel".
