Good bye, Mr. Lem

Stanislaw Lem is dead.

He was an underrated and overlooked genius; it's not hyperbole to call him the Polish Borges. His body of work included some of the funniest and most inventive science fiction, mysteries, other novels, and essays. He wrote about space exploration, the horrors of war, the mathematical patterns of life, and the insides of our very strange brains.

I would give my left nut to write like him.
