Read full description of the books:
A captação de um raio pulsante de neutrino - cuja fonte possui o poder de uma estrela - alvoroça a comunidade científica mundial. Seria uma mensagem enviada por inteligência alienígena? Para decifrar o fenômeno, o governo dos Estados Unidos patrocina uma pesquisa secreta, enclausurando algumas das maiores inteligências do planeta num complexo localizado no meio do deserto californiano. O diretor do projeto batiza-o, ironicamente, de "A Voz do Mestre", por estar indeciso sobre a qual senhor obedecer: àquele das estrelas ou o de Washington.
A Voz do Mestre é uma das mais originais obras de ficção científica já concebidas. Stanislaw Lem, autor de 'Solaris', planejou este romance como um ensaio escrito pelo personagem principal a respeito de um fenômeno estranho e assustador sobre o qual todos - inclusive os cientistas - sabem muito pouco. Descrevendo como os homens de ciência competem entre si, chocando-se e conspirando enquanto manobram por benefícios e posições, Lem realiza uma sátira mordaz dos processos de pesquisa científica.

Read information about the authorStanisław Lem (staˈɲiswaf lɛm) was a Polish science fiction, philosophical and satirical writer of Jewish descent. His books have been translated into 41 languages and have sold over 27 million copies. He is perhaps best known as the author of Solaris, which has twice been made into a feature film. In 1976, Theodore Sturgeon claimed that Lem was the most widely read science-fiction writer in the world.
His works explore philosophical themes; speculation on technology, the nature of intelligence, the impossibility of mutual communication and understanding, despair about human limitations and humankind's place in the universe. They are sometimes presented as fiction, but others are in the form of essays or philosophical books. Translations of his works are difficult and multiple translated versions of his works exist.
Lem became truly productive after 1956, when the de-Stalinization period led to the "Polish October", when Poland experienced an increase in freedom of speech. Between 1956 and 1968, Lem authored 17 books. His works were widely translated abroad (although mostly in the Eastern Bloc countries). In 1957 he published his first non-fiction, philosophical book, Dialogi (Dialogues), one of his two most famous philosophical texts along with Summa Technologiae (1964). The Summa is notable for being a unique analysis of prospective social, cybernetic, and biological advances. In this work, Lem discusses philosophical implications of technologies that were completely in the realm of science fiction then, but are gaining importance today—like, for instance, virtual reality and nanotechnology. Over the next few decades, he published many books, both science fiction and philosophical/futurological, although from the 1980s onwards he tended to concentrate on philosophical texts and essays.
He gained international fame for The Cyberiad, a series of humorous short stories from a mechanical universe ruled by robots, first published in English in 1974. His best-known novels include Solaris (1961), His Master's Voice (Głos pana, 1968), and the late Fiasco (Fiasko, 1987), expressing most strongly his major theme of the futility of mankind's attempts to comprehend the truly alien. Solaris was made into a film in 1972 by Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky and won a Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1972; in 2002, Steven Soderbergh directed a Hollywood remake starring George Clooney.
He was the cousin of poet Marian Hemar.
