Review of "Dzieci Nocy".
Dzieci nocy - Witold Jabłoński

Finally I wrote a review of this book. Political fiction in 25th century, mix of science fiction and fantasy with vampires inside. More science than magic.


Full review of the book is on: http://forculturessake.wordpress.com/2014/01/21/dzieci-nocy-review/


Enjoy reading! Or did you read it already? Then, what's your opinion of it?

Stanisław Lem's stories review
Solaris - Stanisław Lem
Kongres futurologiczny - Stanisław Lem
Maska - Stanisław Lem

I've reviewed 3 stories by Stanisław Lem, Polish sf author. I've read them for the challenge of reading Polish literature... and because I decided "It's time" to read Lem at last.


These stories are:

  • Solaris
  • Kongres Futurologiczny (The Futurological Congress)
  • Maska (The Mask)


The review is on my blog, here: http://forculturessake.wordpress.com/2014/01/11/reading-stanislaw-lem-part-1/ but as you can see from rating, I've enjoyed all 3 stories. Btw, the covers I used in these posts, aren't the covers of the books I've read. I've read really old Polish pocket books, but no need to add it here. ;) At least these covers are more interesting. :P

A short review
Kongres futurologiczny. Maska - Stanisław Lem

Two great and entertaining stories. The Futurological Congress, an SF story, is still believable despite being written 40 years ago. Sometimes, the old SF may be feeling fake, but not this time. (un)fortunately. A lot of neologisms, making from time to time reading it difficult. This story was an inspiration for The Congress, a 2013 film directed by Ari Folman.


The Mask is a hunt story that isn't too dynamic and more filled with thoughts and thinking. But this is what makes it great.


A great read not only for SF fans but for those who're interested in human psyche as well.
