It is a excellent, very humorous publication. someone accustomed to Lem's brief tales and works like "Imaginary Engines" will be aware of what to anticipate. unfortunately, the under blurb utilized by the writer is sort of meaningless.

This is a set of excellent but imaginary stories of nonexistent books. With insidious wit, the writer beguiles us with a parade of pleasant, disarmingly common innovations. "Lem is Harpo Marx and Franz Kafka and Isaac Asimov rolled up into one and down the white rabbit's hole" (Detroit News). A Helen and Kurt Wolff Book

(there is a request for this Lem identify, however it is an seen test, no longer "retail"...however, if the person that placed the bounty on it unearths it applicable, permit me know!)
