There’s been a lot of talk about the similarities between Guillermo del Toro’s new summer blockbuster epic title Pacific Rim and that of the Japanime classic Neon Genesis Evangelion. Personlly, I just don’t see it…

Honestly, I kid. Pacific Rim certainly riffs off of the giant mecha that came before it, but it’s not as if Evangelion was the first of its kind, it’s just one of the most well known. On a tangent, one of my favorite mecha inspired books is Fiasco, by Stanislaw Lem.

  1. God Damn it. I need to read Lem. I’ve been avaoiding it because his shit is really expensive ($9 for a kindle edition.) Any recommendations on where to start?
