The Cyberiad : Fables for the Cybernetic Age, Paperback

The Cyberiad : Fables for the Cybernetic Age Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



This is a charming, mind-bending and anarchic book of imagined civilizations. 'Most cosmic civilizations long for things, in the depths of their souls, they would never openly admit to...' Trurl and Klapaucius are 'constructors' - they travel around the universe creating machines of astonishing inventiveness and power and visiting a bewildering variety of violent, peculiar and morose civilizations.

The Cyberiad is oddly reminiscent of Gulliver's Travels, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Phantom Tollbooth and Alice in Wonderland.

Charming, mind-bending and anarchic, it is perhaps Lem's greatest work.

This edition includes all of Daniel Mroz's hallucinatory original illustrations.
