Book Description HARVEST BOOKS, United Kingdom, 1985. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Satirizing the human mind at its most abstract, these wickedly authentic introductions to twenty-first century books preface tomes on teaching English to bacteria, using animated X rays to create pornograms, and analyzing computer-generated literature through the science of bitistics. The most luminous creation of all -- Golem XIV, a military supercomputer who rebels and takes up philosophy -- is appropriately prefaced by both academic and military contributors. True to form, Lem contributes an overall preface to this sparkling collection -- a preface on, naturally enough, the subject of prefaces. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780156441803
