Waterstones Says

Delightfully playful and imaginative, Lem’s wry short stories envisage a cosmic competition between two futuristic ‘constructors’ attempting to outdo each other with the outlandishness of their inventions. 

'A giant of twentieth-century science fiction' Guardian

One of the world's most beloved science fiction writers, Stanislaw Lem was famed for his wryly comic, outlandish imaginings of the relationship between humans and technology. In this playful cosmic fantasia, two 'constructors' compete to dream up ever-more ingenious inventions in a universe beyond reality.
