" In this universe the night was falling; the shadows were lengthening towards an east that would not know another dawn. But elsewhere the stars were still young and the light of morning lingered; and along the path he once had followed, Man would one day go again"

Arthur C. Clarke Against the Fall of Night

New arrivals, Stanislaw Lem

“Man has gone out to explore other worlds and other civilizations without having explored his own labyrinth of dark passages and secret chambers, and without finding what lies behind doorways that he himself has sealed.” 

from Solaris by Stanislaw Lem

Even though we are home most of the time, I have not posted a great deal. We have been doing some gardening, but I think my lifelong devotion too sloth is probably an even more significant factor. I have had some new arrivals, but most are additions to my weird tale and horror collections. That said, I am pleased to share what must be the most cheerful cover I have in my science fiction collection. I want to look at Stanislaw Lem's work, and I could not resist this edition. I love robots. The cover is by Robert Dale; according to the ISFDB, this is his only science fiction cover. That is unfortunate I would have loved to see what he might have done with Simak's Project Pope or Dick's Clans of the Alphane Moons
