The Cyberiad

This month we are reading The Cyberiad by Stanislav Lem.

The Cyberiad is a series of short stories by Stanisław Lem. The Polish version was first published in 1965, with an English translation appearing in 1974. The main protagonists of the series are Trurl and Klapaucius, the “constructors”.

The vast majority of characters are either robots, or intelligent machines. The stories focus on problems of the individual and society, as well as on the vain search for human happiness through technological means.

Its a very enjoyable book, so why not have a read of it and join us for a fun and enlightening discussion? See you soon!
