I've read the Cyberiad, a decent collection of sarcastic, cynical, and silly fables concerning two inventors and their inventions, nothing like Solaris or His Master's Voice.

Never heard of that guy who wrote the NYer thing before, but probably would read something else by him.

A Perfect Vacuum is the best thing of his I've read outside of Solaris and His Master's Voice, especially the 'review' of Gruppenf├╝hrer Louis XVI about ex-Nazis cosplaying the 18th century French aristocracy in a South American jungle.

The Cyberiad is a fun read - "a decent collection of sarcastic, cynical, and silly fables concerning two inventors and their inventions" is a good summary from ledge.
