Stefan Grabinsky

Stefan Grabinsky (Grabinsky) (Stefan Grabiński) – a Polish writer, one of the founders of Polish science fiction, best known for stories in the horror genre, in particular, from the collection “Demon ruchu” (Demon of movement), entirely based on the motives of the train and the railway. The prose of Grabinsky was appreciated by Stanislav Lem, who wrote an afterword to the publication of his short stories in 1975.

Grabinsky was born on February 26, 1887 in the city of Kamenka-Bug (Lviv region) in the family of a district judge. As a child, he was often ill; he developed early bone tuberculosis. He graduated from the philological faculty of Lviv University. He taught at the gymnasium in various Polish cities (the longest, in 1917-1927, in Przemysl). He made his debut in print in 1909 under the pseudonym Stefan  (Polish: Stefan Żalny) with the story “Crazy Manor”, ​​which was included in a small collection of macabre works. After the end of the First World War in 1918, he published a collection of six short stories, “Na wzgórzu róż” (“On a Mountain of Roses”), which received some good reviews. He made the greatest impression on Karol Izhikovsky, an influential critic and author of innovative avant-garde prose. Continue reading
