Book Review: Solaris, by Stanislaw Lem

I recently read the 2014 Kindle edition of Solaris by Stanislaw Lem. (See cover art for the Kindle edition on the left, below, and for the currently available paperback in the center, below.) I’m not sure why I don’t recall ever hearing of this book before my recent introduction to it. It’s apparently considered a science fiction classic. I found a mention of it a few weeks ago, in an older book by John Gardner, and that mention intrigued me, so I decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did. It was originally published in 1961 (original cover art shown on the right, below).
