The Cyberiad is a delightful collection of short stories about the constructor robots Trurl and Klapaucius as they travel the galaxy, and I know you all want me to classify it as science fiction. But it’s not. I really want to classify it as fairy tales, but I’m going to compromise and call it fantasy, instead.
The stories are not just fun, they’re quite mathematically sophisticated, too, as I discuss in my post at ninazumel.com.
