Challenging your brain: Stanislaw Lem & Martin Gardner

In case you missed them, I’ve had two posts up at Guys Lit Wire recently.

The first is about that master of silly, smart science fiction, Stanislaw Lem. (And he’s quite good when he’s not being silly, too. But he’s never not smart.) I’ve only convinced a few people to read Lem. The rest of you are missing out! Start with The Cyberiad…

The second is about that master of mathematical games, Martin Gardner. Kidlit note: Not only are Gardner’s books very appropriate for smart kids, but he’s also written an annotated Alice in Wonderland.
