Stanisław Lem was born on September 12, 1921, in Lwów, Poland (which is now Ukraine). He was brought up Roman Catholic but became an atheist “for moral reasons”.
His first novel, Astronauci (The Astronauts) was forced to include many references to the “glorious future of communism” as Lem was writing during the Stalinism era, where all published work had to be approved by the communist regime.
He was internationally recognised for his work, The Cyberiad, which was a series of humorous short stories from a mechanical universe inhabited by robots. The book was first published in English in 1974.
Lem died aged 84 on March 27, 2006, in Krakow, Poland, from heart disease.
