Memoirs of a space traveler : further reminiscences of Ijon Tichy by Stanisław Lem( Book )
65 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,712 libraries worldwide
The adventures and encounters of Ijon Tichy, tourist of the universe. Tichy reveals that "out there" is not so different from "down here," since people are people everywhere.

Tales of Pirx the pilot by Stanisław Lem( Book )
79 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,444 libraries worldwide
In Pilot Pirx, Lem has created an irresistibly likable character: an astronaut who gives the impression of still navigating by the seat of his pants-a bumbler but an inspired one. By investing Pirx with a range of human foibles, Lem offers a wonderful vision of the audacity, childlike curiosity, and intuition that can give humans the courage to confront outer space. Translated by Louis Iribarne. A Helen and Kurt Wolff Book

"When psychologist Kris Kelvin arrives at the planet Solaris to study the ocean that covers its surface, he finds himself confronting a painful memory embodied in the physical likeness of a past lover. Kelvin learns that he is not alone in this, and that other crews examining the planet are plagued with their own repressed and newly real memories. Could it be, as Solaris scientists speculate, that the ocean may be a massive neural center creating these memories, for a reason no one can identify?"--Page 4 of cover
