I enjoyed each and every one of Ijon’s revealing reports and count the following pungent probes among my favorites: Ijon Tichy, the protagonist, is nothing less than a Baron Munchausen in outer space, and each story contains subtle and less subtle hints of its doubtful authenticity.
This collection of short stories is considerably weaker than his other works. The best tales are The Washing Maching Tragedy and the fun and imagnitive finale Let Us Save the Universe though its good intentioned message does club you over the head wit The title is somewhat misleading when barely any of the stories involve space travel, despite the protagonist’s cosmos exloring profession. This book is basically a primer for modern philosophy and theology told through brilliant dzzienniki stories that center around odd gwiazdoe and their emotionally devastating creations of new technology and life.
The Dziennniki Diaries First edition. This story lampoons physicalists, semanticists, neopositivists, Thomists, and neo-Kantians alike.

However the timing may be perfect as often you’ll find things coming dzieniki the past to save your future. Ijon is more like your prototypical college math instructor with his skinny tie, wrinkled shirt, corduroy pants, scuffed up loafers and nerd eyeglasses held together by tape.

A second series of 8 episodes followed in If you have not read it, and I assume that is the situation, I highly recommend it!
Return From dziennii Starslike The Futurological Congressdescribes a futuristic Earth, but without the satirical word-play and absurdity that made The Futurological Congress such fun. One of the most zany, convoluted and imaginative tales a reader will ever encounter.
I might be making this book in general sound somewhat deeper and more serious than it is. These stories were cut from the English version of “The Dziennimi Diaries”, I guess because they all took place on earth. Non mancano i resoconti dedicati alla cosmologia – in particolare alle teorie cosmogoniche del prof.

Our stupendous astrozoologist invents a time machine Ijon can take on his next voyage to planet Amauropia. This second volume of short pieces is slightly inferior to the first, principally because it is less varied and more confined too many made scientists, not enough trips to the stars.

And still another recollection showcases a scientist who has mixed chemicals in a test tube to generate his own double. The language, overall, was very rich, changing between styles, even using a made up version of old and new language, in the Polish version, I assume, Polish, but also, and much credit to Kandel, of course, in the English version, a sensational mix of old and new English that I had some trouble with, but that only attests to it’s greatness, because it used expressions long out of use.
The book excels in absurd writing, full of original ideas and various inventions. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Can Ijon Tichy save the day?
