From 'A giant of twentieth-century science fiction' Guardian , the adventures of Pirx, a hapless everyman in outer space 'By now he fancied himself something of a rocket jockey, a space ace, whose real home was among the planets' In a future where space travel has become routine and unremarkable, Pirx the pilot bumbles and daydreams his way through the solar system.
These endearing tales follow his progress from cadet to captain. In particular, in the story The Inquest , Lem puts forth the idea that what is perceived a human weakness is in fact an advantage over a perfect machine. In this tale Pirx defeats the robot, because a human can hesitate, make wrong decisions, have doubts, but a robot cannot. Tales of Pirx the Pilot was translated by Louis Iribarne.
