I'll have to read this again. I don't remember all these stories. Perhaps some were not included in the English translation. I also remember Trurl's companion being Klapaucius rather than Clapaucius. -- Derek Ross | Talk 18:58, 2005 Jan 11 (UTC)

Polish wiki states that it was published first in 1965, and is an expanded edition of 1964 'Bajki robotów'.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 02:15, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

The Sims[edit]

Here's a reference to The Sims. "Klapaucius" is used as a money cheat, without any expansion packs. When you install some expansion packs, it changes to "Rosebud", obviously from Citizen Kane. RocketMaster 20:08, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Science Fiction Folktales[edit]

The analysis (perhaps understandably) appears to completely gloss over the fact that The Cyberiad stories are written in the formula of East European folktales/folk-fables. This makes these stories vastly different from something as rootlessly modern as the Hitchiker's Guide. --64.231.161.110 (talk) 23:22, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Trurl IS robotic[edit]

"Klapaucius is robotic, and although there is no reason to suspect Trurl is not, it is not directly stated in the book." - Actually Trurl is also robotic, this is directly stated in "A Good Shellacking" story.

follow up collection?[edit]

a second collection of his robotic stories, "Mortal Engines" (ISBN 9780156621618), might merit a mention on this page. 68.8.203.35 (talk) 21:41, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
