Hey, I like those titles! Anybody here into Stanislaw Lem? He's my favorite author of all time, a literary love affair I slipped into as an unsuspecting 12-year old when I first started reading Lem's own German translations of great books like Memoirs found in a Bathtub or Eden. Eastern European SciFi, mmmmh tongue

Here is the Celebrity Atheist site I mentioned. However, Douglas Adams is no longer on the list. The list only people who are still living.

The author I mentioned was Greg Egan. I especially recommend his novel "Diaspora", and "Silver Fire" from his collection of short stories entitled, "Luminous".

You can read several of his short stories at his web site:
