Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lem magic This is a collection of short stories based on one of Lem's most loveable characters, Ivon, who is not your stereo typical space traveller. Of course,Lem is not your standard science fiction writer. This book shows Lem's comic wit at it's best. The first story is worth the price of the book alone, because I found myself laughing out loud...maybe you will have the same spontaneous response. I'm reluctant to say too much, in case I spoil the fun but if you are a Buck Fuller fan, or someone who enjoys feeling their synapses sparking from unexpected twists or turns, then Lem is the writer for you and these short stories are a fun place to begin.
