The most exciting news of the week was the discovery, via the KurzweilAI.net daily newsletter, that Stanisław Lem's Summa Technologiae is finally available in English translation. This is a book that I have wanted to read for years. It sounds absolutely amazing, although whether it can possibly live up to my expectations is another matter. Still, I now don't have to learn Polish in order to read it in the original. Unfortunately, there is no Kindle edition available yet, but I have ordered the hardback and can hardly wait for its arrival (early June, I hope).
